Welcome to Circus Spectacular auditions for 2009 and welcome to our famous panel of judges
Thank you, we are delighted to be here, we will be judging each act on science skills and entertainment value.
And for our first act, the jiggly jugglers
Do you want to try some of this oil of loveliness hand cream?
You were losers in science, greasy hands and smooth surfaces cause low friction. No wonder you couldn’t keep a grip on anything. Get a grip!
For our second act, the Terrific Tumblers
That was a wonderful performance; dry hands on a matt surface give high friction. You are winners in science
Ladies and gentlemen, for our final act is the clumsy clowns
You are losers in science - oily surfaces give low friction, which caused the ball to slip from your hands, but you are winners as clowns because you were very funny with that beach ball.
