Celebrating BubbleWeek

Don’t you just love bubbles? They’re fun to make and awesome to watch. And you don’t have to be a kid to get in on the fun. Still kids really love blowing bubbles. Mine do, anyway.

Bubble fun

That’s why it’s fun to celebrate National Bubbleweek, which started in 2000. Bubbles are fun every week but they’re a great reminder this time of year that Spring is coming!

“Don’t Try This At Home” Show = Science Made Fun!

Science is always interesting but it’s really cool, (especially for kids), when it’s fun!

That’s why we loved the preview of the “Don’t Try This At Home” science show at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center

Dry Ice
Dry ice is always a hit!

There was a lot of quiet anticipation, followed by gasps and giggles and silliness, as well as questions like, “How’d they do that?”

The 20-minute shows run throughout the day at 15 minutes past the hour.

I’ve watched this hair dryer + toilet paper on a paint roller video a lot and it doesn’t get old!
