Clowns from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will amaze children of all ages as they bring a live, interactive performance to the Museum of Science and Industry Saturday, Dec. 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Science of the Circus event will feature activities such as exploring and understanding gravity, examining the art of juggling and learning strength-building routines, all led by the clowns.
MOSI is located at 4801 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa.
The day will feature more than 450 hands-on activities, plus the Ringling Bros. Science of the Circus clowns, who will explain the science behind their daredevilry and skills that require concentration, patience, timing, dexterity and courage.
Then, after exploring the science behind the circus, families are invited to attend "The Greatest Show on Earth" Jan. 2-6 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. The new show, "Built to Amaze!" features elephants, tigers, acrobats and aerialists from across the globe.
