Circus comes to Cox Science Center
Cox Science Center & Aquarium is holding “Science Circus,” a recurring special event, May 27 as part of the Nights at the Museum series.
The science center puts on themed events for all ages from 6 to 9 p.m. on the last Friday of select months. Activities at most Nights at the Museum include science crafts, exhibits, planetarium shows and a spectacular view of the Florida sky in the observatory.
“Science Circus” will feature circus-themed events and activities promoting learning and fun. Attendees can visit touch tanks, view “Dinosaurs Alive!” in the planetarium, create jester hats, play mini-golf, test their skills in a STEM pencil challenge, participate in the “balance the clown” activity, watch Sillee the Clown perform and visit the observatory for stargazing if the weather is good.
