Remember how excited I was about going to Poland? Well I wasn’t disappointed. It was AMAZING!
I was going for two reasons:
- to perform on stage at the Science Picnic (which over 150,000 attend - it’s bigger than Glastonbury! I was on huuuge TV screens and on the radio and telly and everything! Really exciting!)
- and to collaborate with the Scientists at the Copernicus Science Centre (one of the worlds best and most popular science museums… it’s so popular it runs at 100% capacity all year round and it’s really hard to even get tickets!). I worked with them on subjects including Attention Control, Audience Management, Influencing Memory, Creating Wonder and sharing with them how I think our brains work. They were amazing to work with and I think we all learned loads from the experience.
This video is a short TV spot I appeared in during the run up to the Science Picnic. “Kawa czy herbata?” (which means “coffee or tea?”) is a really popular morning national Polish TV programme. As you see I did a little magic and talked about how much I love magic and why I believe it’s so important. I hope you enjoy :)
