Strong Women Science

  • Screening

Ever wanted to know how to balance a chair on your chin, if you can juggle liquid, or how circus performers eat fire? Strong Women Aoife (an electronic engineer) and Maria (an environmental scientist) will reveal the science behind these astounding tricks in this online event.

Strong Women Science doesn’t only illustrate scientific facts. It seeks to promote enquiry, inventiveness, accessibility, and creativity in science, making it open to all. In addition to demonstrating scientific principles in fun ways, the project also looks at the worth of failure and the power of teamwork. Because when science meets circus, anything’s possible.

This programme is presented by the Dean Crowe Theatre & Arts Centre. It will run exclusively on the Dean Crowe website a number of times throughout the day on June 12th.

You’ll be able to watch the 35-minute ‘Strong Women Science’ film as well as four short 6-minute science workshops for hands-on circus activities at home.

These activities will be supported with PDF resources – email any time from Tuesday 8th June with the subject line “Strong Women PDF” and we will reply to you with your worksheets.  We also encourage families from all over the county to capture photos and videos of themselves attempting the activities at home and then share them to our social media platforms tagging Cruinniú na nÓg.

This event is pre-recorded and can be accessed all day on June 12th.
