Have a Good Time for Science! Spend a Day at the World Science Festival

  May 26, 2015  //  World Science Festival

We can’t deny a certain fondness for the mad inventors in movies. They make crazy gadgets that power DeLoreans (we’re still waiting for our time-traveling catamaran), save our super spies (still waiting for the jet-powered ferry, too), and generally make us cackle with glee.

Be Amazed by a Modern Take on Magic at Christian Cagigal’s “Obscura”

  May 18, 2015  //  Magic at Christian Cagigal’s “Obscura”

The real magic isn’t in how they saw assistants…
