Packed with over 40 magical science tricks for kids using simple experiments! Join comedian and author Steve Mould, #1 bestselling author of How to be a Scientist, and learn the secrets behind some of the most famous magic tricks and illusions (and learn some of your own). Learn how to bend water with a balloon, turn water into juice, make a glass beaker disappear in oil, and wow your friends with levitating tinsel! Packed with optical illusions, pranks, and fun facts, this book is a must-have for any aspiring scientist or magician (the two aren't as different as you might think)!Each trick is explained using step-by-step photographs, and the science behind each one is showcased clearly and simply. Interspersed throughout the book are profiles of famous magicians and illusionists, such as Harry Houdini and David Blaine, and stories of how they used science to create their most famous tricks.

Science is Magic is the perfect addition to any family bookshelf or classroom, putting a fresh spin on science for kids. What's fantastic about this kids' activity book is that many of the magic tricks or experiments are something you learn to perform on a friend and require practise. Thus, (the genius bit) it's not something kids will just do once and then turn the page.
