BubblefestXVIII POPs into Action at Discovery Science Center
Orange County’s most popular spring break spectacular begins Saturday, March 29, 2014
SANTA ANA, Calif. – March 18, 2014 – Bubblefest XVIII, Discovery Science Center’s popular spring break tradition, returns March 29 through April 20, 2014. Presented locally by ScholarShare, the three week festival will feature entertainment all ages will enjoy, including the Mega Bubblefest Laser Show, interactive science experiments, the always popular, Bobble Lagoon, an inflatable play zone and a variety of Orange County food trucks.
Inside the Mega Bubblefest Laser Show, guests will witness Bubble Scientist Deni Yang perform astounding artistry and stunts with bubbles, smoke, lasers, and a few volunteers from the audience. His repertoire of tricks include a bubble carousel, smoking bubbles, bubbles within bubbles, and more. Yang has been demonstrating bubble art with his family since childhood. Throughout his career, he has earned international acclaim and the Guinness World Record for producing the largest bubble ever, measuring over 170 feet.
“Bubblefest allows guests to get an up close look at the science in, around, and behind bubbles,” says Joe Adams, president of Discovery Science Center. “The festival and Mega Bubblefest Laser Show, provide a fun, hands-on environment for kids and adults to learn about the fragile spheres we all know and love.”
Hands-on exhibits and experiments demonstrate the science concepts behind the art of bubble making such as surface tension, elasticity, air pressure, and more. This year’s offerings include: Bobble Spheres, Flow Formations, Bubble Wall, CO2 Chambers, Hexagon Bubbles, and an “Under 5” area.
To top off a day popping with science fun, guests will enjoy an Inflatable Play Zone and Orange County food trucks. Also, inside the Science Center, guests can experience our featured traveling exhibit, Animal Grossology. Fun games and displays spotlight disgusting animal behaviors that play an important role in the animal kingdom and the Earth!
