We are taking Science Sunday outside this weekend to experiment with some bubbles. The Connecticut Science Center puts a special ingredient in our bubble solution that makes it work so well. Do you know what it is? Watch the full Science Sunday segment below to learn more, plus see us make a GIANT bubble.
We encourage you to come learn from a professional bubbleologist in person at Casey Carle’s BubbleMania stage show. This show is happening every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in August in the Maximilian E. and Marion O. Hoffman Foundation Science Theater. A separate ticket is required to see Casey Carle’s BubbleMania stage show.
There are also many ways you can experiment with bubble-making at home. Check out Advice from a Bubbleologist, Casey Carle’s blog post where he gives us his top 3 secrets for brilliant bubbling. If you want to learn more about the Connecticut Science Center’s top-secret bubble recipe and get some challenges you can try at home, check out Science At Play: Bubble Bonanza.
