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 bottom of this page for booking details.


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 all children aged 4 to 13 years.
