Bubbles in different weather

By: Starsha A.
Hawaii, Age 15

My science fair project is about the different atmospheric conditions that a bubble can last. We are trying to see if the bubble can last longer on a cold day, or a hot day. First we would have to get all of our materials together, and than mix the first solution together, which would contain dishwashing liquid, tap water, 8 straws, 8 glasses, glue, thermometer, food coloring, olive oil, marsh pen, and masking tape. So what we did first was mix the water, olive oil, food coloring, glue, and tap water into a glass cup. then we made sure that it could blow some bubbles, so then we stuck a straw into the cup, and slighty blew a bubble just to make sure it'll work. then we let it sit for a couple of days. When we went back to it 4 days later, we then mixed it up, so that the solution would not be stuck to the glass, then we placed one cup into the refrigerator, and placed the other cup into the microwave. And that when we learned our lesson, it exploded. So then we remade another one of course, and then again, we let it just sit for a couple of days, and instead of putting it in the microwave, we will just put it outside in the sun. then we take the temperature of bothe the glasses. Our science fair hypothesis is that we think that the bubble will last longer when the atmosphere is cold. and the reason why we think that is because the airs condition is so called that it won't have the heat to pop the bubble. But then again, we could be really wrong.
