This lesson links aspects of states of matter to the use of bubbles to deliver drugs to cancerous tissue, and is appropriate to students aged 12- 14. Most children will be familiar with soapy bubbles consisting of gas surrounded by a film of moisture. This lesson looks at the formation of bubbles that contain liquid surrounded by a ‘membrane’ of gas, giving rise to the name 'antibubbles’.
The purpose of the practical activity is to explore the behaviour of matter in a novel situation, and to encourage students to offer explanations for their observations.
This would also make a good science club activity.
