These will be brought to life by a talented staff of clowns! They will be using juggling, ball spinning, unicycling, human pyramid building, and a variety of other fun circus skills to illustrate what lies behind the “science” of circus movement.

“It’s Circus… It’s Science” helps kids familiarize themselves with scientific concepts first-hand in a fun and funny environment.

Sounds like a great Sugar Sand Saturday to me! Make a note MBMoms– we’ll be featuring this event again in this week’s Weekend Events Roundup post as well.
