Looking for something to do with your children over Spring Break? The Physics Circus at Baylor University's Mayborn Museum Complex might be the answer.

Dubbed "The Physics is Right," the science festival consists of two main parts: an interactive theatrical play that mirrors the game show The Price is Right and dozens of hands-on science exhibits, which include a Vandergraff simulator that makes a person's hair stand up when touched.

The event is produced by faculty, staff and students from Baylor University and Texas State Technical College - Waco. Show times for the event are 9:30 to 11 a.m. and 12:30 to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, March 12 - 16. Cost of admission is $15 per person for individuals and a family rate of $12 per person with three or more.
