Magic in Science
The world works in mysterious ways and you don’t have to be David Blaine to pull tricks using science. With some simple house hold items, and some innovation we can demonstrate the magic tricks which have scientific base.
Students of grades 3-9 demonstrated simple science experiments / magic tricks in pairs/ groups and explained the scientific concept / principle behind that trick. Students enthusiastically participated in the activity. This activity also provided a platform to the students to share their knowledge confidently in front of the audience and helped them to reflect on their learning, analyse and formulate the scientific phenomena behind it.
Some of the experiments conducted were-
Egg in the bottle
Rocket shooter etc.
The students showed great interest and enthusiasm in performing the magic tricks and simple science experiments. They were able to explain the scientific concepts behind their experiments and also answer the queries of the audience.
