CHILDREN’S SCIENCE CENTER PRESENTS THE MADMAN OF
MAGIC BOB FRIEDHOFFER
The Madman of Magic Bob Friedhoffer will be performing at the Children’s Science Center on Wednesday, January 12 and Thursday, January 13. The much sought after magician has performed for children and adults alike. He uses magical tricks and illusions to demonstrate the scientific principles behind the magic – as science is what makes much of magic work.
Friedhoffer is the author of more than 25 books for children about science and magic. He has also designed five magic/ science sets through Educational Design of New York City, and is working on an additional kit focusing on the magic of Ancient Egypt. Friedhoffer earned his BA in accounting from the University of Miami in Florida, and after magic became his career, he earned his MA in the history and philosophy of science from the City University of New York.
The Madman of Magic will be presenting on Wednesday, January 12 at 9: 30 and 11: 00 am, and on Thursday, January 13 at 9: 30 am, 11: 00 am, and 1: 30 pm. Admission is $ 2 for children, and chaperones are free.
