Circus Physics

"The Big Apple Circus' jugglers, clowns and high-flying acrobats provide an entertaining and engaging way to introduce basic physics concepts to high school students. Eight videos feature footage from the series and interviews with the performers to illustrate the laws of physics at work. For deeper exploration, each video has  a corresponding Study Guide for students and an Activity Guide for teachers, as well as raw video clips of performances which can be used for analysis in the classroom."

Watch Circus Physics: Projectile Motion on PBS. See more from Circus.


  • Engage learners with a different take on Physics and use the 'Questions to Consider' to focus learners' attention followed by the 'Your Turn' activities to assess learning
  • Learners can use the accompanying links at the bottom of the page to 'find out more'

  1. A nice video intro into projectile motion. This would certainly start a topic of conversation off.
