Science and magic will collide at the Danville  Library on Thursday as the town is graced by a visit from local magician  Alan the Amazing. 

Alan Kahn (a.k.a. Alan the Amazing) is a magician  who also teaches science at a San Jose middle school. He is currently  presenting his "Science Magic" show at libraries and summer camps in  Northern California. 

The show may appear at first to be your usual magic show, Kahn said, but in fact "there are no magic tricks." 

"Everything you see is being done to show how  science is not only all around us, but has a captivating, magical  quality," he said. 

Kahn will be at the Danville Library, 400 Front St., from 3-3:45 p.m. The show is free and no tickets required.  

Kahn has presented the "Science Magic" show at  county fairs, STEM & Science festivals, Maker Faires and school  science fairs. He is also a member of the renowned Hollywood clubhouse  The Magic Castle, open only to magicians and their guests. 

Some of the magical science attendees can expect  to see Thursday includes air pressure strength, the Bernoulli Principle,  Newton's 1st Law of Motion and more.
