Super Scientific Circus

Grades 1-6

Super Scientific Circus uses circus skills and magic tricks to showcase scientific principles. With boomerangs, bubbles, 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.

“Best show ever! My students were
100% engaged, learned a lot, and are very
excited to try the demonstrations at home!”

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Thousand Ways: A Work in Progress is running now through September 2023. Our new exhibition will be open near the end of September 2023!

You can sign up for a self-guided tour right on your School Show application or email us.
