Making Magic with the Scientific Method

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.

Digital content will be available April 12 - May 21, 2021.​ Due to licensing restrictions, this education program is only available to educators usually serviced by the Center’s Amcor Education Series.

Black Violin enters the student virtual space with an all new, high energy, performance that takes their unique blend of classical music, hip-hop, jazz and pop to new heights.  Recorded at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, this engaging, high definition multi-camera video covers themes of perseverance, exploration and unity with songs like “Rise,” “Unbreakable,” “Believer,” “Dreamer” and “Impossible is Possible.”  Embedded in the performance is a message for students and educators about challenging stereotypes and status quo conventions, and that pathways to success require commitment, practice and unwavering dedication. 

During a pre-recorded question and answer session, Black Violin discusses their personal history, their journey to the stage, and their plans to continue their mission with their non-profit organization, Black Violin Foundation.

Virtual program. Digital content will be available April – June 2021. Due to licensing restrictions, this education program is available to private and public schools, state registered homeschools and state licensed family or group childcare centers that usually attend the Amcor Education Series.​

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
