Event Description

In this highly visual, interactive show, students will be on the edge of their seats as they explore how science creates magic right before their very eyes! Their jaws will drop in amazement as ordinary objects come to life, while others defy gravity with a simple clap of the hands and so much more.

Students will learn first-hand how to create illusions using core scientific principles such as force, energy, friction, motion and more. Together with Bill, they will apply these principles in a variety of magical experiments that will bend the laws of science and create the impossible. Science and magic will collide as students instantly become stronger than their teachers, stop moving objects with their minds and even make a teacher’s cell phone invisibly travel through time. You have to see it to believe it!

Magic in Motion is a magic-filled, educational experience that is designed to inspire students to investigate how physical science can create magic while also playing an important role in their daily lives.

Recommended for grades: 3-7
Running time: 60 minutes
