Science is everywhere! Especially in the Circus!
In this high energy show Dr Quark explores the science and forces behind the circus tricks we all love.
While performing feats of unicycling, juggling, rolla bolla and plate spinning, Dr Quark demonstrates the effects of gravity, momentum, friction, air pressure, energy transfer and push and pull forces.
"The students were raving about how great
the show was, and the teachers were thrilled too!"
Maureen, Primary School Principal
He then applies those same concepts and more to his favourite science demonstrations.
Yes! That means wacky water rockets, groovy gyroscopes,
leaf blower levitations, voracious vacuums, ballistic balloons, and the incredible ostrich egg squeeze!
With exciting demonstrations, lively music, and plenty of comedy, Dr Quark will engage everyone as they learn about the physical science of the circus and beyond!
Please see Booking Details at the bottom of this page.
"The interaction between the presenter and the children was excellent. The children had opportunities to be involved
and were very engaged!"
Annie, OSHC Educator
Great scientific discoveries will also be examined including Newton’s Laws of Motion, the Bernoulli effect, Galileo’s law of falling bodies, and Von Guericke’s famous vacuum experiment.
And because Dr Quark is a former Junior Primary/Primary teacher,
he is able to explain all of these concepts in a manner that is suitable for children from Rec to year 7.
All learning is linked to the Australian Science Curriculum (Links available upon request)
Dr Quark’s Scientific Circus will visit schools and centres in Adelaide and rural South Australia. Contact Graeme Denton, aka Dr Quark to make a booking. Everyone will love Dr Quarks Scientific Circus.
