How To Make It

STEP 1 :

Start with this circuit: power + sound trigger + fan

STEP 2 :

Cut a hole in the bottom of the cup.

STEP 3 :

Place fan on the hole you just made. Make sure the fan blows air into the cup.

STEP 4 :

Tape the fan into place. Make sure no air is escaping from the seam.

STEP 5 :

Tape to the end of a ruler.

STEP 6 :

Connect Bits modules to other end of the ruler with rubber bands.

STEP 7 :

Use the screwdriver to adjust the sensitivity of the sound trigger to your liking.

STEP 8 :

Dip the rim of the cup in a bowl of bubble solution. (Pro Tip: Don't have bubble solution? Mix dish soap with water.)

STEP 9 :

Blow into sound trigger and watch the bubbles come out! What other sounds make the bubbles blow? Try clapping, singing or stomping.
