Wonderful World of Bubbles

17 Jul 2022
10.30am - 11.15am
Is it a theatre show? Is it a science lesson? It's both!
Event type: 
Waikato Museum
1 Grantham Street, Hamilton Central, Hamilton


Suitable for ages 5 to 13 years

As well as being a lot of fun, this family science show facilitates the exploration of identifying, classifying and investigating materials. Your kids will get an understanding of mixtures, how they can separate and how they can come together to create a reaction!

Brought to you by Emily and Alan from Science in a Van, we will journey together through the scientific process of guessing (predicting), trying it out (testing) and seeing what happens (observations). And of course... there's giant bubbles!

Science in a Van provides fun, interactive and memorable ways to see, teach, and engage with science. Based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Science in a Van have been travelling around Aotearoa delivering their unique programmes since 2011.
