Michael Johnson's Bubbleology : The Secret World of
WHEN : Saturday May 25 TIME : 10:30AM
AGES : 4 and UP (Toddlers
welcome if they sit in Parent/Caregiver's Lap)
Keith Johnson's BUBBLEOLOGY is a
touring performance exploring the secret world of bubbles.
Featuring state of the art bubble...art and interactive
educational content. This hour long program (for all ages
but the adults seem to get a bigger kick out of it than
even the kids do) combines Keith's love of exploring how
things work (science) with his passion for sharing what
he's learned in new and creative ways (art). There are
bubbles around us all the time, it's just that we don't
realize it. What better way is there to encounter the
magic hidden in our everyday experience than though
someone sharing unique insights in an entertaining and
educational style? It doesn't get any better than that.
Tickets are now
available at the circulation desk. Program is free but
canned-good donations will be gratefully accepted for the
Wrentham Food Pantry. This program is supported with a
grant from the Sweatt Fund. You are simply superkalifragilistexpiralidous! not less than that!
Your soap bubbles are amazing and you are a great
popularizer of science! All the very best wishes for You,
Magic Man!! Success!–
Newton Santos, Brazil
This is so awesome! You are one of the luckiest people
ever. Bubbles are fascinating– Ruthie Y., Florida Haha, he’s tricking those kids into loving science with bubbles!!
