Science or Magic? K-8th grade

Science OR Magic?

Both science and magic have the ability to amaze and fool people. This show teaches students to see the difference between the two, and motivates them to learn more.

Students learn to ask the two most important questions in science, “How?” and “Why”, as they witness amazing things presented right before their eyes.

Giant smoke rings are created on stage to demonstrate air pressure. Beach balls are balanced on streams of air, and a streamer of TP is sent floating out over the crowd. One lucky student will even ride a hovercraft across the gym floor! The best part is that members of the audience get to participate in creating the wonder. This is not a “sit back and watch” show, this is a “get involved and get up on stage” show.

This show is designed to explore different scientific ideas for different grade levels:

  • For K-2, the show introduces the concept of science and experiments.
  • For Grades 3-5, the Scientifc Method is explored more deeply.
  • For Grade 6-8, the relationship between science and “magic” are explored, and the audience learns how magicians use science in their “illusions” and “tricks”.
