## I’m Forever Blowing … Cubic Bubbles

July 6, 2012## Here are some Cubic Bubbles:

### Mackenzie has made a Square Bubble.

### Angus has made a Cubic Bubble. Thanks Guys!!!

### ……………………………………………………

## Where did Mathspig learn about Cubic Bubbles?

### At the **the 13e Salon Culture & Jeux Mathematique, Paris.**

………………………..

** **

### This Phd student was demonstrating how to make CUBIC BUBBLES. Everyone was intrigued.

### ………………………………………..

### Finally, I tracked down the supplier of the mathematical construction kit used above.

### It’s called Zometool. It is absolutely brilliant.

### The manufacturers describe the kit as Art and Science at play.

### What you can build with this construction kit is mind-boggling. Here are Zometool Experts Erwin and Lyn.

### They built this sphere in several hours the day before the expo.

### You can find these German product kits on Erwin’s website @ Zometool

……………………………………………………………………..

### Here is a video showing the Zometool and how to make a cubic bubble.

### The Zometool is a little pricey although well worth the investment for a school.

### But if you want to make a cubic bubble you can construct your own cube using straws and pipe cleaners or just pipecleaners.

### Mathspig and Ivy, 10, my maths consultant from next door made pipecleaner cubes (Below)and cubic bubbles

### ( Hint: You have to jiggle a bubble into the center of the cube). We had great fun.

### We made the best cubic bubbles from the straw cube (below)

…………………………………..

**So go on, mathspiggies, have some fun. Make some cubic bubbles.**
