Kronzek, Allan The Magician's Art and Scientific Inquiry Performing Arts- Magic,
Science
How do magic tricks fool us? Where does our thinking go astray? If we can be fooled by the illusions of a stage magician, how do we know we aren't being fooled by other illusions as well? Among the core science concepts explored in this eye-opening program--which combines baffling magic with audience brainstorming--are those related to developing skepticism, forming hypothesis, questioning appearances, testing explanations, and distinguishing between a scientific and non-scientific world view. Allan Zola Kronzek is a writer, magician, and longtime teaching artist. He is the author of the NY Times bestseller The Sorcerer's Companion-A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter, and the highly-acclaimed A Book of Magic for Young Magicians - The Secrets of Alkazar.

Boertzel, Brooke Fair and Square Anti-bullying Theater Workshop Performing Arts- Theater
This interactive anti-bullying performance and workshop for 3rd-5th grades helps students understand and responsibly deal with conflict. Three actor educators visit your library and perform an interactive drama which explores an incident that occurs within a fictional elementary school. Throughout the drama, highly trained actor educators periodically step out of role and facilitate talk-backs with the students, reflecting on the story. Throughout Fair and Square, students will witness important moments in the story where the characters are faced with difficult decisions. Through guided discussions, students will then actively explore the potential dangers of reactionary decision-making, and the consequences of those decisions. Towards the end of the performance, students become actors themselves as they take on roles in the drama, collectively determining the outcome of the story!
