Preschool welcome

Science is everywhere! Especially in the Circus!

"The students were raving about how great

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

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. 

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!

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.

"An exciting and vibrant show which connected scientific principles with fantastic circus tricks. Thoroughly recommended!"

Vicki, Primary Teacher, Woodend Primary School

 

"A fantastic engaging show that not only entertained the children, but also taught the basics of science!"

Tash, Yr 2 Teacher

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.
