Circus! Is Coming to Town

Admit it, more often than not when kids hear the word science they want to run the other way. But it doesn’t have to be this way anymore.  Enter Circus! Science Under The Big Top, a highly interactive and educational traveling exhibition making its appearance at the Science Centre for a limited time. Parents, you will be begging your kids to run away to THIS Circus!



Hailing from the Ontario Science Centre, this exhibition will draw kids to it like moths to a flame. Because which kid wouldn’t want to know the inner workings behind all the mind-boggling acts? With over 20 interactive exhibits, there will be too much to do and too little time. As always, we are more than happy to help you with the highlights.



For all those who have a thrill for heights, head to both the High Wire and the Elastic Acrobatics stations and get ready to put on a performance. Of course there will be some help from a harness but still attempting somersaults in the air and maintaining balance on a 9 foot high cable will seem quite the achievement.



Everyone has a funny bone so why not put yours to use at the Clown Alley. Learn the tricks behind the tricks in this must visit exhibit. You can even don a clown costume in the role-play area. Are you ready to juggle?



Maintain your balance and not in metaphorical terms but actual balance. Find out if it all it takes is mental preparation to walk without falling across a tightrope suspended 3 meters above ground or is there more to the eye.



And what about contortionists? How do grown men and women transform their bodies into itty-bitty forms and place themselves in unusually small spaces? Be privy to these special inside facts.



Of course you will not be asked to learn, observe and evaluate throughout your whole visit. There will be plenty of opportunities to just sit back, relax and enjoy the fun. There will be magic shows and other fun activities to keep kids of all levels and interests entertained.

Science will never again seem boring after performing, watching and examining all the various circus acts. Let magic and art intertwine in this grand showcase where reality and illusion will play hide and seek. Come and join the Circus!
