About the event
Ever wanted to know how you balance a chair on your chin, whether or not you can juggle liquid, or how circus performers eat fire? StrongWomen Aoife and Maria reveal the scientific secrets behind their astounding tricks. In a fun, lively and fast-paced family circus performance, learn how jugglers, acrobats and hula hoop artists use science to create their amazing acts. StrongWomen Science seeks to promote enquiry, inventiveness and accessibility in science and also looks at the worth of failure and the power of teamwork, both shared by science and circus. Because when science meets circus, anything’s possible!
This event will premiere on Edinburgh Science's YouTube account at 10.30am on Sat 26 Jun and be available to access on-demand until 10.30am on Mon 28 Jun.
Why not try out Aoife and Maria's spectacular workshop activities as well! You'll be able to download and access three different workshops across the first two days of the Edinburgh Science Festival through the videos and downloadable materials.
