Bubbles!

8 11 2010

Last weekend I received an email saying that as part of Science Week the Faculty of Science and Health at DCU is hosting ‘The Bubble Show’, sponsored by Discover Science and Engineering by Bubble Master Stephen Allman from ‘Show Me Learning’. The show was mainly aimed at school children but I emailed anyway asking whether I could attend and they said I could certainly go to one of the shows.

Therefore today at 12 saw me going to XG19 where the show was going to be held. I did not know what to expect. I have seen my sister rave about some of the similar kinds of shows she had attended, but had not been to one myself. The children were chatty and noisy and boisterous. But once the show started they were quickly enthralled (me too I must say).

All he said was really accurate scientifically, and I actually learnt a lot too…did you know how to determine when a bubble is going to burst?…look at its colours and you can predict when. It is true. It works. We looked at things like how bubbles form, different bubble sizes, and shapes…bubbles got filled with smoked, played tennis with and hovered in mid air.

Some images/videos will hopefully follow, cos the connection is currently a disaster.
