Bubbleology enchants audiences of all ages with the art and science of soap bubbles. Keith uses bubbles—large and small—to explain liquids, solids and gasses, geometry, tension and pressure,  and 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. While those demonstrations snare viewers attention—Keith reveals the science behind the magic, unfolding the "how-to" like a mystery, making it both educational and unforgettable.  For all ages.
