Circus! Science under the Big Top

Science under the Big Top is an all weather exhibition. Themed around the all time kids favourite event, Circus! Science under the Big Top invites visitors to take a closer look at the most mind-boggling and death defying circus acts.


The exhibition features 20 interactive exhibits. Long snaking queues would be expected for the three meter High Wire and the Elastic Acrobatics for the Trapeze experience.


Other exhibits include a dress up area where you can live your circus dreams
Strongman

You can even learn a circus trick or two.

 There are plenty of small interactive stations to discover at Circus!

Before you leave, take a nose test for your favourite Big Top food. Even if you cannot taste the food, you can have free smells!

Billed as the largest series of the year, this blockbuster exhibition will be open from 28 Oct to 18 March. During weekends, you can even see magic performances at 330pm. Admission to the event is priced at $15 per child and $18 per adult. Family bundles at $52 are available for a family of four ( 2 adults and 2 kids)

Tinkerfest: Flights of Fancy
Nov 27 - Dec 3 

During the holiday season from Nov 27 - Dec 3, there will be a Tinkerfest : Flights of Fancy workshops. Specially curated workshops on flights include Make Paper Fly, Spin and Fly, Kite-making, Flying Automata and Egg Drop Challenge.

Can you save the egg
We previewed the Egg Drop Challenge where we have to drop a fragile egg from height and make sure it landed safely.

A real egg was used for this activity. We named it Humpty. Will it survive the fall?


Using an assortment of materials provided, we raced through time to create the perfect capsule for Humpty.

When it is done, it is time for the Egg Drop Challenge. Will our egg survive?

 In the end, Humpty suffered like his namesake.



The workshops are recommended for different age groups ranging from 3-10 or 4-10. They can be done as a parent and child combination or just a child . Prices starts at $30 for a parent child combo to $15 for individual child. Price includes any applicable Science Centre admission fees.
