Strong Women Science (1:30pm Show)£7.00 – £9.00
StrongWomen Science is a new circus science show starring two women scientists turned circus performers. (Aoife is an engineer, Maria an environmental scientist.)
Ever wanted to know how you balance a chair on your chin, if you can juggle liquid, or how circus performers eat fire? StrongWomen Aoife and Maria reveal the scientific secrets behind their astounding tricks. In a fun, lively and fast-paced family circus performance, find out how jugglers, acrobats and hula hoop artists use science to create their amazing acts. The show opens with a roll call of strongwomen from history – in science and circus.
StrongWomen Science doesn’t only illustrate scientific facts. It seeks to promote enquiry, inventiveness and accessibility in science, making it open to all, in particular young women and girls. In addition to demonstrating scientific principles in fun and accessible ways, it looks at the worth of failure and the power of teamwork, both shared by science and circus. Because when science meets circus, anything’s possible.
