The circus is known for awe-inspiring, physics-defying acts that leave viewers with a sense of wonder. From thrilling knife juggling to soaring trapeze artists, the circus provides entertainment that balances reality with fantasy and leaves all in fascination.

With Le Sally Discovery School’s interactive exhibit, come explore the science behind some circus favorites: plate spinning, tightrope walking, and illusion acts. At the end we will have you questioning the reliability of your own perception and possibility of real life levitation.
