[PORTLAND, Ore – January 24, 2023] – Jason Latimer, World Champion of Magic and
science educator, will bring Impossible Science LIVE to Portland this February, a
performance of illusions to challenge visitors’ understanding of what is possible.

Impossible Science LIVE’s unique blend of science and magic takes audiences on the
journey of making the impossible possible through Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics. From the foundation of all science and discovery to the leading edge of
technology and innovation, this 60-minute, live performance demonstrates how the right
question changes everything.

Latimer integrates all fields of science into illusions that inspire a sense of wonder.
Have your understanding of physics challenged as Latimer walks through solid matter.
Discover the power of curiosity and chemistry as he forms water into objects. From
bending light with his hands to drawings that come to life, guests of all ages will be awed by
this wonderful experience of science and illusion.

“Our next cure, next technology, or next revolutionary change will come from a question
that has never been asked,” says Latimer. “It’s wonder that changes the world. It’s the right
question that changes everything.”

Latimer’s Impossible Science LIVE will run every weekend in February beginning Saturday,
February 4 and closing Sunday, February 26.
