Webinar "It's not magic, it's science you don't see Part 4"
Another exciting selection of magic "tricks" and the hidden science behind them. Use them as introductions to topics or simply as puzzles for students to solve. It is important, as in all science, to observe carefully and ask the right questions if you want the correct answers!
If you have your own favourite "magic" you would like to demonstrate for others please contact David (email@example.com) at least a few days before the meeting so we can include it.
Secrets will be revealed at the webinar!!!
Please be aware of your time zone, the webinar is at 17:30-18:30 CET (Berlin time).

Paul has been involved in physics education for over 20 years. In Ireland, he supports other science teachers through his work with the Institute of Physics in Ireland (IOPI) and the National Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). He is co-chair of the Irish Science on Stage NSC and a board member of Science on Stage Europe.
Rute is passionate about learning and science, that is why she has been teaching physics and chemistry for over 20 years in the south of Portugal. Over the years she has performed science shows at school where she always tries to introduce some magic. She has attended Science on Stage webinars where she met David, Adrian and Paul and it is from them that she has been learning more about the science behind magic.
