Weird Science

January 24, 2008

If the word "science" conjures up unpleasant memories of formaldehyde, Bunsen burners and the droning voice of your high school chemistry teacher, maybe it's time to reevaluate. Give your kids the advantage of a much more entertaining set of scientific associations at the Super Scientific Circus, starring Mr. Fish the magician and his foil Trent the Mime (pictured). Using big-top elements like plate spinning, juggling, boomerangs, stilt dancing, illusions, bullwhips and wire walking, the pair inject fun and humor into the world of science. Quicker than you can say "E=MC2," you'll be learning -- and laughing -- about complex concepts such as inertia, centripetal force and aerodynamics. 2 p.m. Sat. James Armstrong Theatre, Torrance. $10. (310) 781-7171; www.torrancearts.com
