Super Scientific Circus

Grades 1-6

Super Scientific Circus uses circus skills and magic tricks to explain scientific principles. With boomerangs, bubbles and bullwhips, rolling globes, spinning plates and students floating in mid-air, Super Scientific Circus demonstrates and explains complex scientific principles, ranging from friction and inertia to static electricity and magnetism.

“Really fun, educational, and engaging for children and adults alike!”

– 4th-5th grade teacher, Sonoma Charter School
