The Unexpected Show and Magic vs Science

The Unexpected Show (15 Minutes)

Science is based on curiosity about how things work. As we build up our view of the world we learn to expect things to happen in a certain way. This show aims to bust those expectations as we demonstrate science with unexpected results.
