Did you know the circus is coming to town? Yep! Yep! It will be here from July 15th – July 26th, but more on that later. Today I want to tell you about an event happening at the Discovery Science Center this Saturday, June 27th (which just so happens to be my birthday, in case you were wondering). Anyway, THIS event sounds like it’s going to be awesome…

What makes clowns such talented jugglers, unicyclers and stilt walkers? Is it the big red nose? Nope! Believe it or not, it’s an understanding of basic science principles that make them pros at these challenging, wacky stunts!

Runaway with the circus on June 27th as Discovery Science Center and Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey presents Science of the Circus! Each 30-minute presentation will feature circus tricks and stunts along with the scientific principles at play behind each skill. Real circus clowns will demonstrate how these scientific principles play a major role in their performances and enable them to put on unique and thrilling shows.

Think you can master the science of The Greatest Show on Earth? Test your skills at scarf juggling, bubble tricks, and balancing objects during each show!

Show Times are Saturday, June 27th at 11 am, 12:30 pm, 2 pm, & 3:30 pm. & While your at the museum be sure to check out the latest exhibitions: Robots & Us and Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home.
