    Event Description:

    Science Circus is physics taught with hilarity and dexterity. Often compared to a Pixar movie, Science Circus blends mature science with comedy to create a show The Smithsonian Institution called, “wonderful.” Observe gravity’s constant acceleration through bowling ball juggling, gyroscopic stability through glass bowl spinning, centripetal force with cowboy lariats, center of balance from a six-foot tall unicycle, and inertia with a classic tablecloth pull. Come watch as master juggler Rhys Thomas describes and demonstrates physics concepts with the irresistible force of levity.

    Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

    _________

    Science on Tap at the Kiggins is produced in partnership with Washington State University Vancouver.

    *A note on the suggested cover: Science on Tap is largely supported by money collected at the door. We are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can. Buying a ticket in advance confirms that you will have a seat at the event.
