Magic and the Mind



October 11, 2014, Demo: We will give a short Magic and the Mind demonstration at the Green Neuroscience Laboratory in Kearny Mesa at 7:00 p.m.


August 11–15, 2014, Youth Camp: Our Magic and the Mind youth camp will take place at UCSD Extension, City Center, Room 303. This five-day program, designed for 12- to 18-year-olds, combines magic, neuroscience, and psychology to explore how the human brain is so easily fooled. Learning real-world information like this provides students with valuable insight and critical-thinking skills that will help them to understand one very important concept: Things aren't always as they appear. To learn more about the camp, see the Programs section of this website, or register now on UCSD Extension's website (enter Section ID 105060).
