General Goal
Utilizing discrepant events and "magic" can intrigue
and inspire even the most disengaged students.
OUR GOAL: Build a discrepant event which can be
used during outreach presentations at local
schools to foster the "mysterious" and "that's
funny" moments.
"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the
fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true
science." --Albert Einstein
"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the
most discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's
funny..." ~Isaac Asimov
