StrongWomen Science is a circus science show for children and families starring two women scientists turned circus performers. Aoife Raleigh is an engineer, Maria Corcoran an environmental scientist.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, find out how jugglers, acrobats and hula hoop artists use science to create their amazing acts.StrongWomen Science doesn’t only illustrate scientific facts. It seeks to promote enquiry, inventiveness and accessibility in science, making it open to all, in particular young women and girls. In addition to demonstrating scientific principles in fun and accessible ways, it looks at the worth of failure and the power of teamwork, both shared by science and circus.'Brilliant - juggling liquids for crying out loud! Very impressive people.’'Jaw-dropping, informative and fun. StrongWomen Science's performance was incredible! I loved every minute!’'If ever there were role models I would like my own daughter to have – the two StrongWomen would be it!''A most enjoyable, empowering event - so inspiring and enthusiastic. I will be thinking of the StrongWomenScience team for a long time to come.’‘Fantastic way to get children enthused about STEM.’‘Kids from 4 to 15 years old were equally enthralled during the workshop, it was fantastic to see such enthusiasm, excitement and joy from the audience. Parents were bowled over at the quality and success of the engagement and show as a whole.’ Salisbury Playhouse12:00 Saturday, 16 April 2022 14:30 Saturday, 16 April 2022
