Saturday Morning Science: Surface Tension

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent

Surface Tension

Introduction

Surface tension is a physical phenomenon that occurs when a liquid is in contact with a gas; the surface of the liquid acts as if it were a thin elastic sheet. Surface tension is caused when intermolecular forces draw the liquid particles together, as shown in the drawing immediately below. Because the molecules at the surface are not surrounded by other molecules, they are more strongly attracted to other molecules at the surface, which creates a pseudo-film at the surface.

Price

Price is per child attending, parent or guardian can attend class with child for no additional fee. $30 for non-members, $20 for members of BioCurious*
