Knowing the smart combination of magic, science and art
Dr. C.P. Aravindakshan guiding a girl identify interesting aspects of science in magic.
Thiruvananthapuram: Children who attended ‘Science and Magic’ class by renowned science teacher, Dr. C.P. Aravindakshan on 16th February at Magic Academy’s Wonder World auditorium, were introduced how magic and science make a ‘smart’ pair.
“Science and Maths, when added to Art becomes, Smart”, he told to children. Children were then led to fascinating facets of magic that were closely linked to science. When they learned their new trick of unhooking two mutually coiled iron pieces, they were also reminded that it was the same science that keeps the compartments of a train firmly chained together.
When a young participant secretly kept one of the many colour chips scattered on the floor, the magic teacher was there rightly predicting the hidden chip’s colour leading kids to the concept of VIBGYOR in Physics.
Director of Magic Academy, R. Rajamoorthy handed over a memento to Dr. C.P. Aravindakshan.
Earlier, ‘INDIA: Magic of Harmony’, a video souvenir of the Vismay Swaraj Yatra conducted by Gopinath Muthukad and team, was screened.
