Science Magic with the Museum of Science

Tue Apr 22, 2014 3:00 PM at Main Library

Ever wonder how magic tricks really work? This program investigates the science behind the “magic” of several classic magic tricks. You might learn how to snatch a tablecloth without disturbing the items on top, make a balloon fireproof, and use electromagnetism to defy gravity. For the grand finale, our educator demonstrates how science can make it safe to lie down on a real bed of nails. Approx. 45 minutes.
