Bubble making workshops allow students to discover the magic and science behind making bubbles.

Dr Hubble will teach students how to make bubbles in a sustainable way without plastic and pollution!

All bubble shows commence with students observing one large bubble on its journey to create a state of mindfulness and focus.

During the performance students are encouraged to gather data using all their senses, to wonder, pose questions and make predictions.

Shows can include the following:

  • Bubbles come in and can be made into an array of different shapes and sizes.  Dr Hubble will show the students a square bubble!
  • The composition of bubbles (water, soap and air) and, as heat affects the water in the bubble it becomes thinner and thinner until it disappears.
  • The way wind, our breathe, heat and dry surfaces affect the way bubbles behave (cause and effect).
  • Students will assist Dr Hubble in keeping a bubble ‘alive’ by gently blowing underneath it.
  • Bubbles are transitory, like emotions, they are real, but then they float away and eventually disappear.
  • Speaking and listening skills through active involvement in the show.
