Ed the Wizard's Alchemy Laboratory!


Artwork by  Seija Neumyer copyright 2019

Alchemy Class is about to begin!  Magical Secrets are about to be shared!
Enter the Alchemy Laboratory of Ed the Wizard.  Watch, volunteer, and learn as we perform vanishes, transfigurations, and other feats of magic with everyday items found at home. !

My Alchemy Laboratory is where “Harry Potter meets real science.” 

This program is ideal for libraries and schools, I recommended grades 1-12, or ages 7 and up.  We will use three of the four Classical Greek Elements, Earth, Wind, and Water, (sorry, no Fire).  Using real science such as Bernoulli’s Principle, Electromagnetism, and Optical effects, learn how to defy gravity, move objects with your mind, change the properties of water, look though solid objects, and more!

Participants are challenged with questions about Alchemy, Scientific Principles, and their general knowledge of the physical world.

Volunteers help with each "experiment," or magic routine.  They are then asked their thoughts as to how and why the effect worked, after which I explained the science, or magic, behind each effect.

Each workshop is about 45 minutes with a short Q&A afterward. 

A copy of  my book, "Ed the Wizard's Alchemy Laboratory" is left behind for future reference.

"This was better than more than half of our other programs, music being the exception!  You were wonderful; you made the science connection interesting and simple.  We want  2 more copies of your book!"

Stephanie Wolflink, Head of Children's Services  Winchester public Library

Thank you for your Alchemy/Magic program.  The combination of science and magic worked very well.   I am sure that some of our audience members went home and tried some of the tricks you taught them.  My daughter is still doing the silver ball trick.

“Honestly?  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but seeing happy faces exiting the program and ASKING for your book was great.  I liked your home made set, very creative.  You were our second most popular program, behind the Princesses! Sorry Ed.”
