Have you ever wondered why bubbles are so colorful? Or why a bubble is round? And just what exactly is inside of a bubble? The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) has the answers as it opens its new sudsy exhibit - The Big Bubble Experiment – on Friday, November 17th.

The Big Bubble Experiment encourages experimentation and discovery through joyful bubble play. Visitors can activate the science behind bubbles through blowing, stretching, popping, and looking closely.

The exhibition includes ten exhibits, offering a variety of tools and methods for exploring bubble solution like stretching large sheets of bubble film to observe the colorful patterns, using bubble wands and air vents to explore surface tension and minimal surfaces, and making huge bubbles with giant wands.
