Back By Popular Demand, Bubblefest Returns To Pacific Science Center

Don’t Miss the Most Poppin’ Event of the Summer

SEATTLE, WA (August 4, 2015) – End summer with a bang – or a pop! The summer’s most family-friendly event, BubbleFest: A Summer Science Celebration is returning to Pacific Science Center. Explore the science behind bubbles through live demonstrations and hands-on activities August 14 through 16 under the famous Pacific Science Center arches.

BubbleFest features three days of educational entertainment for guests of all ages. Discover experiments that reveal the science concepts behind the art of bubble making such as elasticity, surface tension, air pressure and more! Create beautiful giant bubbles at our outdoor bubble stations and play with fluffy, bubbly, foam spilling from barrels in our bubble courtyard. Top it all off with a relaxing kayak around our ponds.

BubbleFest gives guests an up close look at the science in, around and behind bubbles,” said Alia Mahlum, senior event supervisor for Pacific Science Center. “It’s a fun, hands-on environment for kids and adults to learn about the fascinating spheres we all know and love.”

Interactive science experiments, arts and crafts, live science shows, bubble machines, and the always popular, liquid nitrogen ice cream demonstration are a few of the activities throughout the weekend.
