Since we were just kids, we had the impression that science is a tedious area of study because of the all the memorization, complex mathematical concepts, and humdrum lab experiments we were required to do. But a thrilling, new show from the Discovery Channel is set to change this notion for us and prove that science can be presented in the most enthralling and fascinating manner.

The Magic of Science features demonstrations of different scientific principles, which are made to look like incredible magic. Four of the world's top magicians, Canadian Billy Kid, Australian James Galea, American Wayne Houchin and Briton Ben Hanlin, walk the streets of New York, London, and Warsaw giving passers-by and onlookers spectacular illusions and stunts and provide mind-blowing scientific explanations afterwards.

Candymag.com correspondent Athena had the chance to talk to one of the magicians, Ben, and he gamely shares his experiences as a performer and illusionist. Read on to see how he lives a life of magic!
