Still, the debate rages. After each new trick — and they are tricks — some people speculate about how it was done, while others poke holes in their theories and try to hold on to the illusion. Here are some of the great tricks that have dazzled us, caught us off guard, perhaps even made us wonder for a moment—and then turned out to have a simple, usually mechanical explanation. Apparently, though, it was. Soon after the giant statue disappeared before our eyes on television and in front of a live audience , a simple explanation was revealed. Rather than moving the object, as magicians vanishing small items do, Copperfield apparently moved the audience.

Science magic tricks look like magic—an effect with a secret—but that secret is based on a scientific principle or concept that makes it look like a magic trick. With the help of chemistry or physics, "magic" is "science" and "science" is "magic"! Some of the tricks are actually stunts that are science lessons, while others are tricks that have secrets based on scientific principles. You can perform science magic tricks as straight-out tricks or use them as opportunities to teach scientific concepts. Either way, they're fun to learn and are sure to amaze your audience.
Once you master this trick, you can learn an impressive, advanced variation with two rubber bands. If you like, you can substitute a hairband, but you'll need to make sure it has enough slack to complete the trick. Hold your hand naturally and wrap the rubber band around your pinkie and ring fingers.
