Illusionist Bill Blagg’s brand-new Magic Science Lab will have students on the edge of their seats - in the classroom or at home - as they discover how science creates magic right before their very eyes!
Students join Bill Blagg inside The Magic Science Lab where they will explore how magicians use science to create the impossible. In this residency, students will learn the “secret” 5 step process (The Scientific Method) magicians use to develop the illusions they perform. Together with Bill, they will use the “secret” 5 steps to make a person magically float mid-air. As a bonus, Bill teaches a science based magic trick students can do at home or in class - how to make a pencil float in the palm of their hand!
Key Themes: The Scientific Method, Gravity, Center of Gravity, Balance, Friction, Optics, Illusion, Problem-Solving and Creativity.

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s innovative performance-based emotional learning series Puppets in Paper takes you and “Pip,” a paper bag puppet, through colorful worlds and emotional experiences. Pip was created to be gender neutral and all performances are non-verbal, supported by soft coloring for children on the spectrum.
This production is a series of bite-sized videos that you can play at your own pace. Half of the videos show the puppet Pip as they explore their emotions, and the other half invites children to play along with their very own Pip.
The Mermaid Workshop, hosted by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s Director of Education and Outreach, Struan, shows you how to make puppets out of resources commonly found in the classroom or at home. Each episode ends with a short scene showing how much fun you can have playing with puppets.
Key Themes: Creativity, Language Skills, Relationships, Fine Motor Skills, Problem Solving
