Techniquest

Live science show
30 minutes
Ages 5+
£2 per person (add-on to admission)

Explore the weird and wonderful world of bubbles and blasts, with one of Techniquest’s biggest bubble-blowers!

How exactly are bubbles made? What happens when we fill them with different gases? And can we blow them up?

Book a live science show with us, where our bubbly presenter will delve into all of these questions with you and more.

We’ll show you propane bubbles, methane bubbles and why bubbles are actually a sandwich. Although definitely not one you should eat.

From the small to the ginormous, you’ll be transfixed by bubbles that float, ones that glow in the dark and others that will make sure the show ends with a bang!

  • Age guidance: 5+

    Our live science show presenters adapt to the audience in front of them, so anyone from 5 to 95 should find plenty to engage with!

    You may not find the live demos as relevant for under-5s, but please check with staff before booking if you’re unsure.

  • Tickets

    Please note that every show ticket must be booked in conjunction with a valid admissions ticket. Availability is limited, so the best way to guarantee your space is to book in advance.

  • Other information

    There is a loud bang at the end of this show. Ear defenders will be given out before the show starts, and plenty of warnings will be given before the bang.
