Aoife Raleigh, an engineer
by profession, and Maria Corcoran, an environmental
scientist, have embarked on an inspiring journey,
transforming themselves into circus performers and
unravelling the mysteries behind awe-inspiring acts.
Witness their astonishing feats and learn the science
behind seemingly impossible tricks, such as balancing a
chair on your chin, juggling liquids and eating fire.
In an engaging, fast-paced
family circus performance, audiences will be treated to
a dynamic showcase of juggling, acrobatics and hula hoop
artistry, all interwoven with scientific explanations.
‘StrongWomen Science’ aims not only to share scientific
facts but also to ignite a passion for inquiry and
creativity. The show welcomes all, with a particular
emphasis on encouraging girls and young women to explore
the captivating world of science.
Dea Birkett, founder of Circus250 and visionary behind
‘StrongWomen Science’ said: "All sorts of people come
along to our show and are surprised that science can be
so much fun!
“By combining the wonder of circus performances with the
accessibility of scientific principles, our show also
highlights the value of learning from failures and the
power of teamwork – values shared by both science and
“We’re on a mission to bring the magic of circus to new
places and introduce the world of science to those who
may have never considered it before.
“Indeed, the impact of ‘StrongWomen Science’ extends
beyond entertainment; it aims to inspire young minds,
especially girls, to see a future in fields like
engineering that might not have been on their radar
“Importantly, if one girl or young woman goes away from
our show and puts ‘engineer’ as an option on her career
choices that she didn’t have before, that’s a success!”
Artlink Project Co-ordinator Martha McCulloch added:
“We’re delighted to be supporting Circus250 and the
Inishowen leg of their entertaining and enlightening

event for the whole family and is a brilliant way to
