Wizardry is one of the oldest performing arts in the world in which audiences are entertained by staged tricks or illusions of seemingly impossible or supernatural feats using natural means. These feats are called magic tricks, effects, or illusions. It has the capacity for creating a fully emotional hook and also motivation for leaning since it generally piques kid’s natural curiosity.

Self-working wizardry trick also indicates that if the performed flows a perfectly defined set of instructions, then the trick must work all by itself. It actually needs no sleight of hand or also some other hidden objects or moves. It is therefore quite helpful in encouraging learners for going beyond just the answer and also explores some logic to prove the outcome. All the participants will get a certificate of participation through a ceremony.
