Explore the Secret World of Bubbles

From the Beacon
Rockport —
All programs at the Rockport Public Library are free, open to the public and handicapped accessible. The library is at 17 School St. For more information on all events, visit rockportlibrary.org.

Bubble artist Keith Michael Johnson will entrance youngsters with bubbles that seem to defy the law of gravity when he appears on Saturday, Feb. 6, at 10:30 a.m. in the Brenner Friends Room.

Bubbles are fun to make, but there are reasons why they seem to behave magically. In a program geared to children in grades K-6 and up, the science behind the magic unfolds like a mystery. The audience learns why water won’t make bubbles on its own and where rainbow colors come from.

Johnson notes that for good, clean fun, nothing beats a soap bubble the size of your car. His eye-pleasing tricks include creating bubbles with his bare hands and building a tower of bubbles on top of an inverted glass.

A graduate of Ringling Brothers Clown College and a professional performer for elementary audiences, Johnson uses science and art to help children use their imaginations and creativity to explore and understand the world around them.

The program is appropriate for elementary youngsters and the young-at-heart of all ages. In case of severe weather, the snow date for the event will be Sunday, Feb. 7, at 2 p.m. This event is funded by the Friends of the Rockport Public Library.
