About The Event:
Enjoy a live interactive magic show infused with science! This interactive, virtual show will combine magic performance, as well as scientific visual illusion demonstrations. Learn about the eye and how to make an image disappear. Jeanette will explain careful instructions for interactive magic tricks that you can perform along with her in your own home, and create magic without fully knowing how you accomplished these magical feats — wow your friends, wow yourself, and learn about your brain, senses, illusion and magic!

This is the first live event in the three-part series on science, magic and illusion sponsored by Siena Construction for Cambridge Science Festival.

About the
Festival

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
