Steve Harmer takes magic performance to the next level with his Motivational Magic program. In these shows, Harmer isn’t just doing card tricks and pulling rabbits out of hats. He also teaches kids about complex ideas like resilience, leadership, and bully prevention through the act.
"Kids love magic. It captures their imagination," Harmer told the Mayerthorpe Freelancer. "The message enters in the back door."
It’s a lovely twist to put on a magician’s show for Harmer, who used to be a teacher and principal. He’s taken his Motivational Magic show to more than 3,000 schools across Western Canada.
"I love capturing the children's attention," he said. "It's just a fun way to teach.”
