Discovery Park Campus Lecture Series continues with Science Magic

By Stephanie Caffall

Thatcher, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Discovery Park Campus will present a free, family-friendly lecture on Saturday, February 26, at 6:30 p.m., in the Jupiter Room of Discovery Park Campus entitled, Science Magic. This lecture will be led by Sharon Greene and Carol Lewis, fun, experienced science teachers who enjoy entertaining with “magic” by using principles of science.

“You will see things that will baffle your senses,” says Paul Anger, Discovery Park Campus director. “Like clear liquids turning red and blue by themselves, the licking flames of a fire controlled without hands, a balloon that can blow itself up inside of a bottle; and you will watch while a needle passes through an inflated balloon without popping it!”

“Science often appears like magic,” says Green. “Indeed, often the great magicians of old were using simple ‘tricks’ of science.”

“Sharon and Carol have successfully shared their ‘Science Magic shows’ in many classrooms, sparking the science bug in countless Gila Valley children,” says Anger. “Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy their fun, enthusiastic approach to sharing in the wonders of Science.”

There will be door prizes, Gallery tours, Space Shuttle simulator rides, and public viewing of night sky objects through the 20” Tinsley Telescope, all free of charge and minutes away from home.
