Share Article

Edinburgh is host to the Edinburgh International Science Festival from 9th to 22nd April 2011. This year it will feature a brand new "World of Bubbles" workshop where children can play with bubbles whilst learning about science. Chemical Suppliers, ReAgent, are supplying Glycerol for this event as sponsorship.

Children can learn about science while playing with bubbles

The World of Bubbles is an exciting new event for us, and we are delighted to be working with ReAgent Chemicals and Fairy to create the perfect bubble mix.

ReAgent is proud to sponsor the World of Bubbles workshop which is a new event at The Edinburgh International Science Festival for 2011.

The World of Bubbles will involve children standing inside a giant bubble, using bubble wands to create bubbles of various shapes and sizes, while learning about surface tension, light refraction and the science behind why a bubble is the shape it is.

Scientists have been working behind the scenes on the ‘perfect bubble mix’ for use at the exhibition and have decided that Original Fairy Liquid mixed with Glycerol from ReAgent Chemicals, one of the leading UK chemical suppliers is ideal. As there was a limited budget for the workshop, the festival was delighted to receive sponsorship from the two companies. Fairy has donated 260 Litres for the festival and ReAgent has donated over 200 Litres of pharmaceutical grade glycerol, which should keep even the keenest bubble-blowers busy for a very long time!

Dr Simon Gage, Director of the Edinburgh International Science Festival said “The World of Bubbles is an exciting new event for us, and we are delighted to be working with ReAgent Chemicals and Fairy to create the perfect bubble mix.”

The World of Bubbles can be found at Edinburgh City of Arts Centre, Market Street Edinburgh and will run every day from the 9th to the 22nd April, excluding Sundays. It is a drop-in event available with a City Centre Family Pass. For further information on Edinburgh International Science Festival please visit the website – http://www.sciencefestival.co.uk.

ReAgent is pleased to be associated with what will surely be one of the most exciting features at the 2011 festival. Science, particularly chemistry, can be great fun and 2011 is the International Year of Chemistry. Plans are already underway for a similar to take place in 2012.
