   Most people inside a soap bubble-Dr Robyn Wheldon-Williams sets world record

A group of 59 children from schools across North Wales took part in the experiment which was hosted at Venue Cymru last Thursday.

  The bubble was made using a mixture of warm water, washing up liquid, glycerol and a secret ingredient.

Nearing 1,000 school children from North Wales witness a record breaking attempt at the largest bubble during an amazing day of spectacular experiments in a show called 'The Big Flash Bang'.   

   In May 2007 the Bangor University scientists broke the record with 35 people in a soap bubble as part of S4Cs science show for children, Atom.

   Dr Robyn Wheldon-William said: The record lasted three months, being broken in the States with 42 and more recently 50 by a bubble artist in London. We hope that we've brought the World record back to Wales" said Dr Robyn Wheldon-Williams.

The aim of the bilingual show is to encourage children to take a real interest in science at a young age.

  An excellent communicator, who inspires an interest in science in children and adults on television and on stage Dr Robyn Wheldon Williams is a graduate of Bangor University and a Chemistry teacher at Ysgol Brynhyfryd, Ruthin as well as managing Bangor University School of Chemistry's Outreach Programme.

   The show is sponsored by the Welsh Assembly's Reaching Wider initiative and Hands on Science project.
