Over 1,400 excited students arrived at the Bologna Performing Arts Center on Wednesday to enjoy matinee performances of MatheMagic!®, presented by Bradley Fields.
Students traveled to the BPAC from several counties including Bolivar, Coahoma, Humphreys, Leflore, Sunflower and Washington. MatheMagic!® is the second of five matinees to be presented throughout the school year as a part of the Bologna’s School-Time Matinee Series. The Bologna would like to extend a special thanks to Monsanto for sponsoring MatheMagic!®.
Internationally acclaimed magician and educator, Bradley Fields, captivated students with his famous magic illusions and turned them on to the history, the power, and the beauty of the language of Math. The performance promoted math-skills and problem-solving through visuals, history, language, audience participation and entertainment. Students left the theatre with a renewed sense of wonder and the enthusiasm to discover the Magic of Math!
