The Bubble Chamber

Alfred Nobel had a lot of ideas. For example, he invented dynamite. He decided to give the money he made to other people. People who are bubbling with ideas. That is how the Nobel Prizes got started. The Nobel Prizes have been given out for more than one hundred years. There are prizes in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, peace and economics. In the Bubble Chamber, you will learn about the Nobel Prize subjects and about Alfred Nobel.

Puppets in the Bubbel Chamber

The Bubble Chamber has something for everybody, but mostly for children 3-11 years old.

The making of the Bubble Chamber depended on the generosity of its former sponsor: Kia Motors Sweden AB.
