From the Science of Magic to the Magic of Science

  1. 1. M Duran, JA Vieta, J Duran, L Guillaumes and S. Simon F Blasco* Universitat de Girona and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid* Science Communication, Science Education, Magic in Education @magsci http://magsci.eu This project tackles the interfase of Magic and Science to promote STEM studies, increase scientific culture among citizens, and disseminate Science. The use of attractive techniques related to illusionism is used develop two stage shows, organize a Magic, Science and Education meeting, build a MOOC entitled “magic, Science and Confessable Secrets”, establish workshops at schools, and design mobile apps and games. All tasks rely heavily on the participative use of the Internet, so social networks and online communication are combined with in-person, physical activities. From the Magic of Science to the Science of Magic The Magic of the Periodic Table The dual characteristic of the Periodic Table of the Elements (PTE) allows to adapt classical magic games and also to create new ones. We show a collection of fun, entertaing, and educating activities on PTE. On stage, we complement mathematical magic with spectacular, fast chemistry experiments - humour and audience participation is indeed a key performing issue #lamtp MOOC on Science & Magic This Massive Online Open Course (http://magcimooc.net) provides basic knowledge of magic techniques, especially those based in science facts. We also use illusionism to explain difficult concepts found in Science education, and show how to use magic to engage students and citizens into Science. Finally, we provide some clues on magic, psychology and communication I Meeting on Science, Magic and Education (24-26 April 2015) This meeting discussed how to best use magic and illusionism to improve science awareness and science culture. It gathered researchers, university and secondary/primary teachers, and amateur and professional magicians having shows based on science principles. It was complemented by a Magic Gala and a Magic Walk through Girona #ecme15
