AJ the Magician
After watching a magician teaching magic online AJ Perea was inspired to begin practicing magic. He joined the Society of Young Magicians when he was just seven years old. While attending a performance at Theatre of Dreams in Castle Rock, CO AJ met Joe Givan and Carol Massie, who are his magic coaches. AJ attended their Wizard Camp and took private lessons from Carol and Joe. Their instruction and act development helped AJ secure a spot at the Oceanside Magic International Convention in Cape Cod, MA and the Society of American Magicians’ annual convention in Philadelphia, PA.
Today AJ enjoys performing for charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, St. Jude, the American Heart Association, the Pueblo Suicide Prevention Center, and the Boys and Girls Club.

Fun with Pinball
Are you curious about how things work? After playing a few games on a 1970s pinball machine we'll open the game and dive into the electromechanical wonders inside. We'll discuss basic principles of electricity and magnetism and see how they're used to put the pinball in motion, to keep score and drive the features and behavior of the game. Some of the working examples from FunWithPinball.com will also be used for demonstration and hands on exploration.
