In ancient times magicians wielded tremendous power in society. Of course today we realize that the mysterious world of magic is truly the world of science. All magic is comprised of illusions and the majority of illusions are based on scientific principles. Come with us on a journey of exploration into the science behind the magic.

The Magic of Science allows everyone, both in the audience and on stage, to become a magician. Everything done in this 45 minute school science assembly program looks and acts like a real magic trick. The only real trick is that everything done is science at work.
