Product Description

Steve Mould is a science presenter and comedian with a physics degree from the University of Oxford. He appears as the science expert on British television shows such as The One Show, Blue Peter, and The Alan Titchmarsh Show. He has a YouTube channel with more than 138,000 subscribers, and his videos regularly achieve hits in the hundreds of thousands. One of these videos (about "self siphoning beads") went viral worldwide, gaining more than 1.7 million hits and being mentioned in the New York Times and on the BBC. Scientists later discovered why it performed in the mysterious way it did and dubbed it "The Mould Effect". In addition to this he presents a radio show on BBC Radio 4 and is part of a live comedy/science trio called Festival of the Spoken Nerd who performs at festivals and events.

Mould, who has penned a raft of well-loved titles, such as How to Be A Scientist and The
Bacteria Book, has once again pulled off one of the best tricks of all - making science fun
and easily accessible.

A unique insight into how 'magic' tricks work, and the scientific explanations and step by step guides are well written and clear. There's loads of content and activities to try; a firm favourite in the CS Reading Corner!

Contained within these pages is an assortment of kid-friendly tricks guaranteed to make you
rub your eyes in wonder.

Science is Magic has the perfect balance of try-at-home tricks and science explainers, looking at the weird and wonderful in nature and the science behind some of the best known illusions.

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).

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.
