Boyer, Jeff The Science of Magic Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Science
THE SCIENCE OF MAGIC. Arthur C. Clark once wrote that “sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” and today we live in the age of technology. We are surrounded by magic. In the first half of this show “Boyer the Magnificent” entertains and amazes us with several classic magic illusions. Objects change colors, light bulbs blaze to life with no apparent power source, and spheres levitate before us. Is this magic? “Professor Boyer” says “No!” In the second half of the show he performs these same feats using the tools of modern technology. Explaining laws of physics as he goes, the professor teaches the audience the principles that make these astounding demonstrations possible. Throughout the show volunteers are brought up on stage to participate in an event that amuses, amazes, educates and entertains.
$351- $500
1, Mad Science Wacky Waves Science
Wacky Waves combines three demonstrations and three activities in this exciting introduction to one of life's fundamentals - water. Students will explore four facets of this fascinating substance: density, water as the universal solvent, water pollution and the dynamics of waves. Eggbert and Megg, our hard-boiled friends, will introduce and illustrate density. Since water is a universal solvent, we will explain the incredible phenomena of hydrophobic sand!
$201- $350
