It may be hard to imagine what theatre, dance and even the circus have to do with science but in this episode we show you those connections and more.

Marlene Peralta goes extreme with Elizabeth Streb and takes you inside the Streb Lab for Action Mechanics where choreography meets science as these dancers challenge the laws of gravity for the sake of their show!

Lisa Beth Kovetz introduces us to a playwright whose science background influences her writing.

How do orchids and Broadway intersect? Donna Hanover meets a Broadway designer who uses his theatre background to help design an exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden that will have you cheering in the aisles.

Every wonder what the circus could teach you about science? Carol Anne Riddell has the answer.

And Barry Mitchell meets Odd Todd where science and cartoons collide on the drawing board!
