Greenview students in the gifted education program experienced a wonderful performance called The Magic of Science. The performance was done by Bill Blagg who informed our students via his brochure that many magic tricks are just simple science experiments. The magician adds a few magic words to make you believe that something supernatural and mysterious is happening. Magicians are master showmen and work very hard to fool audiences by using misdirection and manipulating their senses. In the end, there is a scientific explanation for how the trick works that has nothing to do with magic or magic words.
One of our students was asked to go on stage to experience the science in action. It was an Emmy award winning performance by Demari Dammons!
This enrichment activity was a perfect fit with the South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools applying the concepts of STEM whenever feasible. The district is a tireless advocate of offering our students opportunities that exposes them to alternative learning experience that foster a love for learning.
