Danny Carmo’s Mathematical Mysteries

by Cahoots of Northern Ireland

Grades 2-6

Prepare to be amazed, dazzled, and bewildered as we follow Danny Carmo on his journey to live his dream as a magician.  But first he has to embrace magic’s most powerful secret—math! And it wasn’t so long ago that Danny thought math wasn’t for him. Once he believed in the power of math, Danny’s magic tricks became truly mesmerizing. Join us as math, magic, theater, and technology collide in an interactive performance, proving math is fun.

“This performance
shows that math is fun
and all around you!”

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend your field trip to LBC with Art Talks!

Take your students on a self-guided or docent-led tour of our Sculpture Garden. Thoughtfully restored following the 2017 firestorms, our Sculpture Garden is designed to reflect the local Sonoma County landscape. In the Garden, there are two picnic tables with smaller versions of the sculpture elements that you see in the landscape. If you like, have students find new ways to arrange the colorful pieces. Then please leave what they have made for the next visitors to enjoy.

You can sign up for a free docent-led tour right on your School Show application or contact us by email or phone at 707.800.7504!
