If you ever wanted to be on Bill Nye the Science Guy‘s show but never got the chance, Garry Krinsky‘s upcoming performance at Caltech might be a fair approximation. Except with juggling, singing, dancing and, uh… mime (which I actually quite enjoy). The performance, called “Toying with Science,” looks to be a vaudeville-meets-science-lecture kind of deal, with plenty of audience participation — i.e. play. Originally commissioned by the Museum of Science in Boston, the show covers topics like gravity, leverage, fulcrums and simple machines. Apparently he also balances five ladders on his chin at once. A good chance to let out your inner joyful scientist.
