National Juggling Champion and kinetic comedian Peter Davison presents juggling, unicycling, balancing, acrobatics, and more, while teaching the science behind the artistry. This S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, ARTS, Math) program is a perfect mix of education and entertainment for school assemblies, libraries, theaters, and community centers.
Much more than a "science demonstration," Peter mixes awesome circus skills with dance and physical theater in a unique presentation that captivates all ages. Human and machine locomotion, Newton's Laws of Motion, center of gravity, gyroscopic action, centrifugal and centripetal forces, friction, and other physical phenomena are revealed.
Workshops and a study guide are available to keep the fun and learning going well after the show is over.
This 45 to 60 minute show is packed with audience participation, education, and entertainment!
"If you are looking for a S.T.E.M. program that is both entertaining and educational this is it! Peter kept a wide range of ages from 3 to 93 engaged and learning. He has an ability to bring a sense of wonder and joy to the kids and families while explaining the science behind his circus acts. I kept smiling for the rest of the day and we can't wait for Peter to come back this winter!"
