Bill Blagg's The Science of Magic

Gunter Theatre

For centuries, magicians have used scientific principles to make people levitate in mid-air and vanish in the blink of an eye. Illusionist Bill Blagg’s one-of-a-kind educational experience The Science of Magic takes students on a rare, never-before-seen journey “behind the scenes” of the magic world. Students will discover firsthand how magicians use science to create the impossible!

Bill’s comedy-filled, action-packed presentation is highly interactive and makes science fun and exciting. Students will use the scientific method to levitate one of their teachers in mid-air, learn how the science of reflection can make their homework magically disappear, and see an incredible display of the water cycle when he makes it snow using only his bare hands. Students will watch in amazement as science creates magic right before their very eyes!

Curriculum Connections: STEM, Scientific Method, Water Cycle, Reflection/Refraction
