Think the circus is just idle entertainment? The folks at the Newark Museum would beg to differ. This Saturday and Sunday, February 12 and 13, the museum is going to be joining forces with Ringling Bros. to present “Circus Science”. Yes, you and your kids will get to learn the physics behind the juggling, plate spinning, trapeze swinging and tightrope walking that makes a circus a circus.

The fun runs from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day and, in addition to the circus acts, one visitor will win the chance to perform as a clown in Ringling’s All Access Preshow at the Prudential Center in Newark on Friday, February 25 and get four passes to the circus. There will be several other prizes, including a piece painted by one of Ringling’s elephants and tickets to the circus.

In addition to the circus performances, there will be activities all day throughout the museum including face painting and balloon art, and workshops on plate-spinning, animal origami, tightrope walking, magic, spin art, gymnastics and trapeze acrobatics. There will also be a special presentation on juggling techniques by the Jersey Jugglers.

Admission to Circus Science is $10 for adults and $6 for seniors and children under 12, but Newark Museum members are admitted free of charge.
