Bubbles and Blasts

Live science show

Explore the weird and wonderful world of bubbles and blasts, with one of Techniquest’s biggest bubble-blowers!

How exactly are bubbles made? What happens when we fill them with different gases? And can we blow them up?

Book a live science show with us, where our bubbly presenter will delve into all of these questions with you and more.

We’ll show you propane bubbles, methane bubbles and why bubbles are actually a sandwich. Although definitely not one you should eat.

From the small to the ginormous, you’ll be transfixed by bubbles that float, ones that glow in the dark and others that will make sure the show ends with a bang!

Tickets to this show can be purchased when you buy admission to Techniquest. Once you’ve added your admission tickets, you will be given options to book this as an add-on.

Age guidance: 5+
Our live science show presenters adapt to the audience in front of them, so anyone from 5 to 95 should find plenty to engage with!

You may not find the live demos as relevant for under-5s, but please check with staff before booking if you’re unsure.
