Science Magician comes to Literacy Park
Have you been to a Jeff Evans show? This guy is the bees knees! He brings the magic of science alive to kids in a way that’s engaging, entertaining and FUN! Your kids won’t even know that they are learning! They will think they are at a super fun magic show. Jeff’s show will inspire your kiddos to try some of the fun at home, too! He tours Lincoln County next Wednesday and Thursday, July 13 and 14,
with his science magic show.
Wednesday, July 13, Jeff will be at Waldport Public Library (10 a.m.), Newport Public Library (1 p.m.), and Driftwood Public Library in Lincoln City (6:30 p.m.). On Thursday, July 14, he will be at Toledo Public Library (11 a.m.) and Siletz Public Library (1:00 p.m.).
Magic tricks can all be explained by science, and Jeff has been fascinated with science experiments and demonstrations since he was growing up. So, the idea of bringing science and magic together was a natural. His goal is to spread this amazement and desire to understand the magic of science to children throughout the Pacific Northwest. Recent accolades include being named Seattle’s Funniest Magician and receiving back-to-back "Golden Teddy Awards" from ParentMap Magazine for Best Live Entertainment.
Jeff’s lodging while in Lincoln County is provided by Newport’s La Quinta Inn and Suites and Lincoln City’s D’Sands Motel. Funding for his shows is provided by a Ready to Read Grant from the Oregon State Library and Ready to Read funds from the Lincoln County Library District. Additional funding for his Newport show comes from Thompson Sanitary Services, Inc., Janis and Ross Neigebauer and Jeanette Hofer.
