In “Muggle Magic” join Professor Casey Nees on loan from the Ministry of Non-Magical Studies as he takes your students on a fun filled program full of science and magic! Learn how non-magical folk emulate magic with the power of science. Levitation, color changing “potions”, potential and kinetic energy, singing rods and more! This fun filled program will inspire creative thinking and, in the process, show just how magical science can be. 6-10 student volunteers will come onstage but all will be engaged.
