Clowns from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey amazed Children of All Ages as they brought an electric, live and interactive performance to the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) on Saturday, December 8. The Science of the Circus event featured activities such as exploring and understanding gravity, examining the art of juggling and learning strength-building routines, all led by the clowns. Science of the Circus was held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the event was included with MOSI admission.
With more than 450 hands-on-activities, plus the Ringling Bros.® Science of the Circus, MOSI is the place to be for this once-in-a-lifetime event. The talented performers of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey astound audiences across the country with acts of daredevilry and skills that require concentration, patience, timing, dexterity and courage. These science concepts are sure to make learning fun.
MOSI is a nonprofit, community-based institution and educational resource that is dedicated to advancing public interest, knowledge and understanding of science, industry and technology.
