National Juggling Champion and movement artist 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. Much more than a “science demonstration,” Peter mixes awesome circus skills with dance and physical theater in a unique presentation that captivates all ages. 


“Peter Davison put on a show for our elementary school kids that had them mesmerized, laughing, and learning physics laws all at the same time!” 
- Tom Wetzel
