Science Spectrum Busts out the Bubbles!

The Science Spectrum's Bubblefest has tons of family friendly activities and a show all about bubbles

Bubbles, bubbles, and more bubbles, that's what you will see at the Science Spectrum's Bubblefest!

Jacie Hood, Science Spectrum Special Projects Coordinator, said there are tons of interactive activities for families like a bubble blowing contest and making giant bubbles!

"You'll get to do things like freeze bubbles with liquid nitrogen, make crystal ball bubbles filled with smoke with dry ice. We'll also have special activities in the Lubbock Children's Museum just for children 5 and under."

Hood said Casey Carle is the "bubble-ologist" in charge of the Bubble Mania show which promises to keep people ages 5 to 85 mesmerized.

"He's a former Ringling Brothers clown and he does some amazing with bubbles...he shows you how soap bubbles form, the film, teaches you how to make your own bubble solution, he even brings kids up from the audience and does some amazing bubble manipulations with them."

Hood said you can also learn about different kinds of bubbles.

"We don't just explore the regular soap bubble that you see falling around me right now. We also talk about things like where you can find bubble in the real world and also talk to you about the science behind how bubbles work."

And real world bubbles won't be floating down the street.

"Well, uh, do you like food? I do, I love food. Swiss cheese, that has bubbles in it. The little holes you see in Swiss Cheese are actually made by bubbles."

Bubble technology also protects people on submarines and is used for astronaut's space suits!

"They're basically a bubble that they wear when they go out on spacewalks so there's lots of places around you in the world that you can find things that are like bubbles that you might not ordinarily think of."

Bubblefest is from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday October 5th.

Tickets are $8.00 for Adults, $6.50 for Children (ages 3-12), $6.50 for Seniors, and children 2 and under are free.

The Bubblemania show has three show times: 11:30, 1:00, and 3:00 o'clock.

There will be some free Bubblemania activities of the front lawn of the Science Spectrum and Bubblemania is free for Science Spectrum members.
