Circus - Science Under The Big Top
Science Centre Singapore

Get ready for Circus! Science Under The Big Top as it comes to the Science Centre Singapore this October! The exhibition highlights how science has always had an important role in the circus and how circus relies upon a balance of artistry and science to meet new challenges and fulfil audience expectations. Just as science can satisfy our need to understand, the circus meets our need to be amazed, thrilled and even perplexed. You will learn the science behind the circus by performing, examining and watching the art. You'll also get to hold various circus acts up to scrutiny, investigating illusion versus reality, pseudo-science versus science and will ''live the science'' through the magic of the circus.

There's also a collection of exhibits that you can check out:

Elastic Acrobatics - Gain a better understanding of what it feels like by performing your own tricks while hanging in mid-air with a safety harness strapped around them

The High Wire - Strap yourselves into a harness and see if they can make it across a nine-foot-high cable.

Balance Bar - Maintain your balance, not allowing your feet to strike the ground.

Contortionist - Explore the art of getting into small spaces.

Clown Alley - See some tools of the trade and try them out in the costume and role play area.

Tickets: SG$18 (Adult), S$15 (Child, aged 3 to 12), S$52 (Family Package, 2 Adult + 2 Child). Available through SISTIC.

Explore the importance of Science in Circus and Circus in Science through a collection of hands-on exhibits.

October 28 to March 18, 2018 from 10am to 6pm daily.
