Last week, Angry Kid and I attended a media preview of the Sixteenth Annual Bubblefest at Discovery Science Center. Angry Kid loves science and gets excited every time we go to the Discovery Science Center. This was our first time attending Bubblefest though.
What is Bubblefest?
Bubble Scientist Deni Yeng combines science and entertainment by performing bubble art shows. Deni has entertained audiences around the world since age 4 with his marvelous stage performances. At Bubblefest, Deni Yang performs along with the Mega Bubblefest Laser Show featuring a high-tech combination of art and science using bubbles, lights, special effects and lasers.
Bubblefest, the Science Center’s most popular annual event is designed to help visitors appreciate and understand the scientific principles and mathematics of bubbles, and to let them explore the world of bubbles in a fun, hands-on environment. At the science learning stations, guests can create a bubble mini-wall, bubble domes and much more, while learning about math and science principles like surface tension, elasticity, air pressure, and geometry.
With brightly colored lights, and tiny bubbles…the show started off with a bang! All of the kids were grabbing at the tiny bubbles floating in the air. This was only a tiny glance of the bubble awesomeness that was about to come.
Deni used various tools along with smoke so that you could see the bubbles better. Seriously, I was amazed at how much could be done with bubbles. I was like a little kid again!
At the end of the show was an awesome multi-colored laser display. And then tiny bubbles were released in the air everywhere!
Angry Kid had a blast at Bubblefest and I highly suggest attending the show. There is also an outdoor festival at Bubblefest with an inflatable play zone, water spheres, and interactive science activities.
Bubblefest is only at The Discovery Science Center for a limited time, March 31st till April 22, 2012.
Entry into Bubblefest is included with General Admission to Discovery Science Center.
