Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, get ready for the cutest show in town! The Physic Circus has arrived!

Here is the Physic Circus, is a small circus which displays one of the most amazing quantum effects: the superconductivity. Come and see this exciting and interesting show. It will be fun for all ages!

Physic Circus presents a few circus performances for each superconducting property: levitation, temperature effect, vortex pinning, position memory.

A fun new way of learning physics

In between a muppet show and a physics demonstration, Physic Circus can be used by science explainers and museums, researchers, or teachers to engage the public with quantum physics.

This project is the result of a collaboration between physicists and designers in order to change the way we present physics and make it both fun and closer to recent research topics.
