Watch as we juggle bubbles, sculpt and build with bubbles, make fog-filled bubbles and more. Mixing comedy, music and interactive bubble-magic, this engaging show delights audiences of all ages. Kids will learn the science involved in bubbles -- why they are multi-colored and what each color says about that part of the bubble.
What makes up a bubble? Why are they shaped the way they are? And, what holds them together? Registration is not required.
