The Global Project

Our Project “From the Science of Magic to the Magic of Science”, or in a more simple way “The Magic of Science”, is described in a slide presentation, along with its three main subprojects: The Magic of the Periodic Table, The Magic of Food, and The Mathemagics of Science.

The Magic of the Periodic Table

This project, developed mainly in 2014 and 2015, received a Mention of Honor at contest Ciencia en Acción (Barcelona, 2014), and was presented and Science&You (Nancy 2015) and Science on Stage (London 2015). More information: https://magsci.eu/lamtp

The Mathemagics of Science

This activity covers our general activities not included in the other subprojects. They related in general to the use of Mathemagics for the purpose of Public Understanding and Awareness of Science: https://magsci.eu/lammc

The Magic of Food

This activity, funded partically by Foundation Jaume Casademont, involves playing with food to communicate its Science. Info in the slide presentation above, and at https://magsci.eu/mbec

Magic & Science Itinerary

We host also information about the Magic&Science Itinerary in Girona (#itimaggi), including a preprint paper  https://magsci.eu/itimaggiYou may find proper information on this activity in our draft at Figshare:  https://figshare.com/articles/itimaggi-val_pdf/3806727/1

Organization of Campuses and Meetings

Our project involves organization and hosting of Academic/Magic Campuses and Meetings. So far, within the project itself we have organized two events:

FCT-15-10607 (execution along 2016):

This project showcases the buildup of a scientific, creative citizenship by means of open science (online), scientific volunteering, and flexible assotiationism. Two means are providing us currently with reputation and allow us to be successful – they will be used as catalysts: the Internet (Science 2.0) and Magic. This project continues the positive, continued collaboration between Fernando Blasco’s Group (Univ Polit Madrid) and that of main reseracher Miquel Duran (Univ Girona). Besides the necessary coordination and communication task, five tasks are proposed: by means of (a) the Science Disseminators School we propose to leverage the formation of unviersity students in dissemination and creativity, while with (b) the transgenerational science club is a tool for preuniversity students and senior citizens. The latter are the actual prescriptors of youngsters in this first part of the XXIth Century. Furthermore, task (c), the junior campus on magic and science, continues the successful project financed by FECyT currently in execution, which will reach Science on Stage in London very soon, and which brings about a nonformal, concentrated education for talented youth interested in the subject. Finally, tasks (d) and (e) use gamification (games and contests) and the Internet (Open Science and Science 2.0) as elements in themselves and as tools for the first two tasks, having a innovative, pilot character. This project combines thus the buildup of networks and contacts, with the creation of materials and use of the Net.
