Exhibition Name:

Circus! Science Under the Big Top

Description: What if a magical, mysterious traveling circus set up in your Science Center with the circus folk gone but everything left behind for visitors to try? Circus! Science Under the Big Top will use science to explore the wonder of the circus and use the world of the circus to explore science. Imagination becomes reality as you observe, examine and enact the art and science of circus performances. How good is your balancing act? Test it out on The High Wire. Explore the science of the Human Cannonball, spring up in the air as an elastic acrobat and perform amazing Feats of Strength. Learn to juggle, dress up as your favorite circus performer, and discover the secret skills of the Contortionist and Sword Swallower. These are just some of the daring deeds, body-on and hands-on experiences featured in Circus! At least 20 multi-station exhibit covering 5,500 square feet (510 square meters) will immerse visitors in the illusion and reality of the circus, where they'll discover that science is, and always has been, an integral part of "the greatest show on Earth." Cost includes educational and programming guidebook.
