Ever wondered how a single person can lift a car or throw something heavy high in the air?
The all-time favorite science show where kids learn that with physics, they can do anything! Hoisting 200 pounds (like their principal) over their heads, lifting 1000 pounds of classmates, or throwing the portly Dr. Quark 8 feet high is simply a matter of understanding Kinetic Energy, Potential Energy, Friction, and Simple Machines (pulleys, levers, and screws are demonstrated).
Slapstick Science is an astounding, exciting, and entertaining series of science assemblies and workshops which use the circus as a laboratory. All programs are written and produced by certified science teacher and former Ringling Bros. performer, Ted Lawrence.
Dr. Quark performed at CSF 2022 Carnival and drew crowds of 700+ – don’t miss this one-time performance!

Slapstick Science is a cottage industry run from Ted’s Net Zero Energy house in Vermont. What started as an experiment in getting potential scientists excited about science more than two decades ago has grown into a spectacular, full-time educational adventure for youngsters everywhere. We cover schools as far south as Philly, as far north as Maine, and as far west as Syracuse. And we’ll go to the ends of the earth to inspire new scientists if asked! If you think your students would enjoy a thrilling science program, talk to us.
