Exploring Flying Physics

Uncover the principles of flight as students delve into gravity, force, and momentum concepts. Our interactive workshops break down the physics of trapeze movements, allowing participants to design their own mini-experiments. Experience the thrill of flight while gaining insights into balance, pendulum motion, and trajectory.

Engineering Heights and Industrial Equipment

Engage in engineering challenges inspired by trapeze structures. Students design and construct mini-trapeze rigs, applying principles of stability, load distribution, and structural integrity. As a unique addition, participants gain hands-on experience with our industrial lifting equipment, learning the mechanics and engineering behind erecting a full trapeze frame. This practical encounter equips students with valuable skills for real-world applications.

Mathematics in Motion

Mathematics becomes an adventure as students calculate angles, distances, and trajectories essential for trapeze maneuvers. Engaging activities employ geometry to predict a swinging trapeze artist's path and optimize movements. This integration enhances mathematical thinking and spatial reasoning, demonstrating the beauty of math in action.

Artistry in Aerial Expression

Embracing the "A" in STEAM, students explore the artistic dimension of trapeze. They craft choreographed routines that intertwine movement, music, and storytelling. This segment encourages creative expression, emphasizing the pivotal role of aesthetics in fostering innovation.

Culminating Showcase

Culminate the program with a captivating showcase where students celebrate their newfound trapeze skills and present STEM/STEAM projects. Witness their growth, confidence, and interdisciplinary talents as they share their accomplishments with peers, teachers, and families.
