Learning | Abracadabra, Boom, Read!

It may look like magic, but it's all science!

To celebrate our 2014 Summer Reading theme, the Troke Branch library has arranged for Don O'Brien to perform his Xtreme Science Magic Show on Thursday, June 26, at 6:00 p.m.

Mr. O'Brien will show the whole family how much fun science can be, especially if there's some magic in the mixture. Those of us who have seen Mr. O'Brien's shows know there will be plenty of audience participation; will you be chosen to assist him?

After the show, you may wish to check out some books about science magic, to see if there are any activities you might want to try for yourself. 

Recently, I searched for books about magic using scientific principles. I was very happy to learn a new library catalog term in the process. If you put the words scientific recreations in the search box, and choose "subject" from the drop down menu, you will find more than fifty titles that will help you learn science in fun ways.
