BubbleFest at Discovery Science Center


The sensational BubbleFest show has returned to the Discovery Science Center just in time for Spring Break. BubbleFest features the talent of Deni Yang who travels the globe with his spectacular bubble show. Bubblefest not only features Deni Yang’s performance, but a full interactive outdoor science zone for children to explore.




While exploring the interactive bubble zone, children will learn surface tension, elasticity, air pressure, geometry and molecular properties all through the different bubble experiments.






From the moment, my children walked through the giant bubble arches they were immersed into another world. They first started making giant bubbles that wrapped and twisted all around their bodies. They could have spent hours making bubbles at the fun part of the exhibit while learning gross motor skills.



Then it was time to learn the mathematical principles of bubbles at the different bubble science exhibits. The kids learned about surface tension by placing a piece of paper on the water and balancing a paper clip on top. The Discovery Science Center staff taught the kids that surface tension is caused by the attraction of a substance to itself. The kids kept doing it over and over again while being fascinated about the science they were learning.

Next, the kids learned how to make a bubble in a bubble. They were challenged to see how many bubbles they could make. They learned so much science while just having fun blowing bubbles together.




Then it was time for some fun! There was a giant slide, meet n’ greet opportunities with Bob the Builder and a hysterical “Chicken Idol” performance.





Finally, it was time for the most popular attraction in the BubbleFest Interactive play zone (be prepared for a long wait in line), the giant water spheres. The kids were placed inside of a plastic bubble and got to roll, jump and crawl around inside of a giant bubble. The kids literally got to “walk on water” while inside of these gigantic bubbles.

After the play zone fun, the kids were mesmerized by Deni Yang’s performance. Deni inspired the children to “think outside of the bubble” and build on their creativity at home. They could not wait to bring the bubbles home that we purchased in the gift shop, and start making their own bubble shows for their friends in the neighborhood.





Bubblefest will be at Discovery Science Center until April 14th. Tickets are $5 for members, $7 for non-members. Regular museum admission is required; adults $27.95 and children (3-14) $19.95.
