Resource 2

While The Most Magnificent Thinga story about a girl, her dog, and their STEM journey to make the most magnificent thing – isn’t about bubbles, it does have a lot to say about perseverance. This definitely applies to kids embarking on projects involving the scientific method, which we used to design bubble wands in the Rosie Makes episode below!
