LCCC’s Stocker Arts Center Presents “Bill Blagg – The Science of Magic”

Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center presents “Bill Blagg – The Science of Magic” as part of the Student Matinee Series at 9:45 a.m. (for grades 1-3) and at 11:45 a.m. (for grades 4-7) on Friday, March 22 in the Hoke Theatre.

For centuries magicians have used scientific principles to make people levitate in mid-air and vanish in the blink of an eye. Illusionist Blagg’s one-of-a-kind educational one-hour experience takes students on journey “behind the scenes” of the magic world. Students will discover firsthand how magicians use science to create the impossible. Blagg’s comedy-filled, action-packed, presentation is highly interactive. Students will use the scientific method to levitate one of their teachers in mid-air and even learn how the science of reflection can make their homework magically disappear. In addition, he performs some of his mind-blowing, grand-scale illusions with a scientific twist. “The Science of Magic” is designed to excite, educate, intrigue and promote students to think “outside the box” and spawn their curiosity about how science and the scientific method are used by magicians to create the impossible.

Tickets for the Stocker Arts Center Student Matinee Series events are $5 each and are available for schools and the general public. For more information about the Stocker Student Matinee Series, visit http://www.lorainccc.edu/stocker/event-categories/student-matinee-series.
