Bubbleology: The Secret World of Bubbles with Keith Michael Johnson, 10:30 am & 12:45 pm
As seen on Discovery Channel's "Time Warp", National Geographic TV, Keith uses bubbles—large and small—to explain liquids, solids and gasses, geometry, tension and pressure. Keith builds beautiful sculptural creations (massive & miniature) with enthusiasm, humor and style. One moment he will be encasing a dinosaur in a bubble and in the next moment he's encapsulating an audience volunteer. Keith reveals the science behind the magic, unfolding the "how-to" like a mystery, making it both educational and unforgettable. 45 minutes. (Davis Auditorium, D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts)
