Bubbles & Rainbows Weekend

One of the most popular family science gatherings ever at CuriOdysseythis year’s Bubbles & Rainbows weekend inspired thousands, and set a new record!

Over the weekend, hundreds of Bay Area kids were every day scientists as they dabbled in elasticity, surface tension, chemistry, light, and geometry with rainbow and bubble science stations throughout CuriOdyssey.

Rainbow foam eruptions that were a delightful scientific reaction activity; click here for a how-to.

Change your perspective on ‘the bubble’ with Tom Noddy! His repertoire included huge bubbles, geometric bubbles, and bubbles with fog inside.

Inspired by Tom Noddy? Guests could make their own bubbles with fog inside, too.

Did you know? This special programming and more was included with daily admission or membership. Head over to our invitation Bubbles & Rainbows 2018 blog for more of the featured science attractions.
