Magic in Motion – Study Guide

Bill Blagg’s Magic in Motion melds the fascination of magic with the wonders of physical science to create an unbelievable educational experience!

In this highly visual, interactive show, students will be on the edge of their seats as they explore how science creates magic right before their very eyes!  Their jaws will drop in amazement as ordinary objects come to life, while others defy gravity with a simple clap of the hands and so much more!

Students will learn firsthand how to create illusions using core scientific principles such as force, energy, friction, motion and more.  Together with Bill they will apply these principles in a variety of magical experiments that will bend the laws of science and create the impossible!  Science and magic will collide as students instantly become stronger than their teachers, stop moving objects with their minds and even make a teacher’s cell phone invisibly travel through time!  You have to see it to believe it!

Magic in Motion is a magic filled, educational experience that is designed to inspire students to investigate how physical science can create magic while also playing an important role in their daily lives!

The Embassy presents Fort Wayne Youtheatre’s Young Heroes of Conscience Series: Ruby Bridges. Ruby Bridges was born in 1954, the same year Brown v. Board of Education ordered schools to integrate with “all deliberate speed.”  Six years later, as immortalized by the famous Norman Rockwell painting, Ruby became the face of integration when she enrolled in an all-white William Frantz Elementary School.  Her story shows one little girl’s unbeatable courage in the face of adversity, helping lead the Civil Rights Movement up the front steps and into America’s classrooms.
