As part of our outreach program MAJINX has developed a series of workshops that give an opportunity for students to peek behind the curtain of one of the oldest theatrical art forms known to man.  From the temples of Egypt to the streets of India to theatres all over the world, students will see how magic arose from the dark shadows of superstition to become a source of entertainment and wonder.

* How did Houdini get his name?

*What is the most dangerous magic trick in the history of magic?

*Who cut the first lady in half?

*What is an optical illusion and how does it work?

*How does a magician combine science, psychology, mathematics, and story telling to create a wonderful magical effect?

These questions and many more are answered by Professor Wick during this 45 – 60 minute multi-media presentation. He will also perform and explain a variety of clever tricks and puzzles.  This is where the students learn how to build and perform several magical effects for themselves.
