  1. Very inspiring! we are also doing something like this. The Magic of Science Show is a Regional Magic School Tour. It was initiated by the members of Streetmagic Club of Iloilo. The show was designed to bridge the gap between science and magic.. Check us out on Facebook, Science Magic Philippines! Science Rocks!
