Soap film always makes the shape with least surface area, hence a soap bubble tends to be spherical. With this kit you will able to progress from seeing the patterns made by soap film constrained into "two dimensions" by plastic plates, which enables you to look at the shortest distance between two or more points: to looking at the shapes film takes up when constrained in three dimensions by a framework.
Complex and unusual shapes emerge, which are very instructive and can be used the sets to discuss a variety of scientific and mathematical principles, from basic geometry to surface tension, light refraction and minimum energy surfaces. Supplied with teachers notes and suitable from primary to higher level education depending on the topics studied.

This set contains: plastic tubes & corner pieces to make 2 sets of 4 frameworks (tetrahedron, cube, prism & octahedron) and two plastic plates with joiners to view film in two dimensions.
