  • Science Circus

    The Science Circus is a battle between playfulness and the laws of physics. Students will giggle as juggler Rhys Thomas tries to outwit gravity with a bowling ball and a feather, marvel as he turns a sphere into a gyroscope that keeps stable on a student’s finger, and cheer as he coaxes nine boxes to balance, uses centripetal force to spin a cowboy rope and risks his mom’s plates in a throw-down with inertia! It’s a battle everyone wins as you come away appreciating the physics of fun.
