Abracadabra! Everyday Magic

2 Jun 2023 - 12 Aug 2023

As families experience this interactive exhibit together, both children and adults will come to understand how what may appear to be magic can be explained through principles of math or science.

The main exhibit components, or stations, include:

Perform Magic – Grab a cape and wand and perform magic on a stage where you become the center of attention. Will you be able to disappear into thin air? Pull a rabbit out of a hat? Or entertain everyone with your very own shadow puppet show.

Experiment with Magic – Camouflage yourself to demonstrate how some animals can disappear into their surroundings. Mystically suspend balls in mid-air. Play with tubes and ramps and right angles to move objects from one place to the next. See an interactive electricity demonstration. Create a chemical reaction using your own body heat. Build and create with magnets. Create a miniature keystone arch by yourself using blocks or grab some friends and cooperate to build a gigantic 5-foot arch together.

Magical Movement – See your image distorted in fun mirrors or the world through different colors as you experiment with optical illusions.
