Ever wanted to know how you balance a chair on your chin or if you can juggle liquid? StrongWomen Aoife and Maria reveal the scientific secrets behind their astounding tricks. In a fun, lively and fast-paced family circus performance, find out how jugglers, acrobats and hula hoop artists use science to create their amazing acts. StrongWomen in Science seeks to promote enquiry, embracing failure, inventiveness and accessibility in science, making it open to all. When science meets circus, anything’s possible.

This 35 minute performance is followed by 25 minute hands-on activities around circus science experiments.

The show’s development was supported by the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
