Pioneer Center Youth Programs presents Larry Wilson

Under Larry’s master tutelage, students will discover the fundamental scientific principles behind the world’s most amazing magic as he teaches several simple (yet amazing) magic tricks that all students can do at home with common, everyday household objects, like crayons, coins, paper, pencils, and scotch tape.   


Larry performs extraordinary feats of magic using direct, hands-on learning applications, feats that will leave students agape in disbelief.  As astounding as these tricks may be, the secrets behind them are often more incredible.  Larry will demonstrate some of the basic principles of magic which make them a lot less mysterious and, in the process, introduce the notion that magic is really just the bratty, younger brother of science.  

Although the two disciplines seem worlds apart, Larry will quickly make the connection so that students who never thought they were interested in science will be astounded to discover a lot of perplexing stuff that can easily be explained when we understand the science behind it.

Under Larry’s master tutelage, students will discover the fundamental scientific principles behind the world’s most amazing magic as he teaches several simple (yet amazing) magic tricks that all students can do at home with common, everyday household objects, like crayons, coins, paper, pencils, and scotch tape.  

Using the principles of deception that Larry has shown, every student will be able to perform magic tricks that will mystify and delight their friends and families.  Ambitious students will find that they can actually create their own magic tricks and those with an insatiable craving for magic will find unlimited resources in the accompanying recommended list of books and videos to be found in the local public library system.

Perhaps most importantly, students will also learn that the magic of yesterday is the technology of today.  (Think: wireless transmission of pictures and sound.)  

This event will be live only, don't miss it!
