HONESDALE, PA — Dr. Bob Friedhoffer, professional magician and educator (a.k.a. the “Madman of Science”) will be at The Cooperage on Saturday, January 25 at 3 p.m. performing magic tricks to teach children (and adults) about science.

Friedhoffer explains how to construct and perform his science-based magic tricks with materials found around the house. As kids learn magic, they learn the scientific principles behind the magic. They learn that science is useful, fun, exciting and well worth studying. He travels widely with The Scientific Magic Show and instills in audience members, young and old, an enthusiasm for science through the wonder of magic.

Time permitting, there will be a question-and-answer session at the end of the performance during which kids will have the chance to meet and speak with Bob Friedhoffer. For more information, visit or call 570/253-2020.
