  • Exeter Maths School presents the The Science of Soap Films and Bubbles!

    Discover the enchanting world of bubbles like never before. While we often associate bubbles with carefree summer days and childlike delight, there's a fascinating mathematical marvel hidden within these delicate spheres.

    Mathematically, soap bubbles are examples of the complex mathematical problem of minimal surface. This means that given a certain volume, they will always take the shape with the least surface. For this reason, they have actually been used in mathematical problem solving.

    Come along to blow bubbles and learn about their versatile applications, from transport planning to roofing design.
