School Author Visit

The attention span of today’s kids is becoming shorter than ever before. Much of this is due to the internet and the rate we can send and receive information. Furthermore, many of the educational systems around the world have yet to implement many of the new tools the internet provides to make teaching more engaging for these children. As a result of these things, children are becoming bored more easily in the classroom!

Master Plaster The Storytelling Magician, through his unique style of magic, storytelling, and songs will help you reengage the children. Master Plaster will take the kids on a hour long magical journey where reality starts to become confused with fantasy! During this short journey the kids will learn new aspects of creativity and how to think outside the box, and be anything but bored!
