Science is everywhere! Especially in the Circus!


In this high energy show Dr Quark explores the incredible science of the circus.


While performing feats of unicycling, juggling, rolla bolla and plate spinning, Dr Quark explores push and pull forces, balance, energy types, gravity, friction and air pressure. And he explains them in simple terms appropriate for pre-schoolers.

"The students were raving about how great

the show was, and the teachers were thrilled too!"

He then applies those same concepts and more to his favourite science demonstrations.

Yes! That means wacky water rockets, groovy gyroscopes, magical floating beach balls, giant balloons and the incredible ostrich egg squeeze!

With exciting demonstrations, circus music, and plenty of fun,

Dr Quark will engage everyone

as they learn about the science

of the circus and more!

The discoveries of great scientists will also be discussed (in very simple language) including how things move (Newton's laws of movement), the floating ball effect (Bernoulli) and the effects of gravity on falling objects (Galileo).

Along with basic concepts such

as shapes and their properties,

large vs small (volume),

hot vs cold (temperature),

heavy vs light (mass),

types of movement

(spinning, rolling, sliding)

and why moving objects want

to keep moving (momentum).

All learning is linked to the Australian Science Curriculum (Links available upon request)

And because Dr Quark is a former Junior Primary teacher, with many years experience in presenting to children under 5 years, he is able to explain the scientific concepts in a manner that is suitable for young learners.
