About this event

The magician is meddling with the science demonstrations! Join magician Rob Ellinger and scientist Dr Erinn Fagan-Jeffries for an hour of science and magic suitable for the whole family, as classic science demonstrations get a magical twist.

There will be bubbles galore, appearing umbrellas, disappearing playing cards and much, much more. Plenty of danger, excitement and maybe even an explosion or two. Come along for a family friendly day out where you can learn some incredible science and be fooled by astounding magic

Presented by:
Erinn Fagan-Jeffries and Rob Ellinger

Dr Erinn Fagan-Jeffries is a local Adelaide scienctist and trained science communicator. She ran away and joined the Questacon Science Circus in 2014 before coming back to SA to do her PhD. She is a winner of the national Famelab competition in 2016 and can regularly be found giving presentations and sharing her boundless enthusiasm and scientific knowledge. A seasoned presenter, this is Erinn's Adelaide Fringe stage debut.

Rob is a local Adelaide magician who has been performing for the last 10 years or so. He made his fringe debut in 2017 with Magic on the Edge, and has since produced two solo shows - Card Play in 2018 and Magic McMagicface in 2019 - returning again in 2020. He specialises in close up and parlour style effects, with a focus on witty presentations and a playful style.
