Descripción
Using games in education has been identified as a powerful tool. If we combine playing with the interest induced by the unknown we are able to get even more surprising results. Our proposal shows some activities designed and developed having those two principles in mind. Moreover, we add another important element: multidisciplinarity. Our project 'From the Science of Magic to the Magic of Science' (#magsci) uses magic tricks to present key concepts in Science. It deals with different formats: lectures and workshops in schools, non formal education in museums and civic centers, the theoretical study of the interphase between magic, science and education, the Mooc 'Magic, Science and avowable secrets" (#magcimooc) as well as some magic tricks designed to learn Science through apps and web pages. Presenting 'mysteries' and puzzles with everyday objects (bank notes, calendars, food, ...) allows us to create an atmosphere that induces the student to be eager to know the secret behind those prodigies. We have developed activities for 'The Magic of the Periodic Table' and 'The Magic of Food'. We will include practical examples.
