"Magic is simply Science done differently!" 

Science experiments disguised as magic tricks! In ancient times, magicians wielded tremendous power in society. Today we realize that the magic is simply science done differently. Student’s curiosities are peaked as they explore the science behind the magic. During the show students experience many moments of, "how does he do that?" Better yet, they become the magician and gain understanding of the scientific principles behind the illusions. They are able to make predictions based on observable patterns, and they analyze and evaluate scientific explanations by using logical reasoning. Do you want a program that gets kids interested in optical illusions, forces and motion, physics and chemistry? Kids love Science of Magic because it is fun and entertaining. Teachers love it because it supports science comprehension.
