Ever wanted to know how you balance a chair on your chin, if 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.
