We have organized a series of fun-filled Harry Potter-themed science experiments and other hands-on activities for children aged 7-12 years old. Activities include the study of potions, care of magical creatures, muggle studies, owlery, defense against the dark arts, and so much more! Adults are invited to take in the National Library of Medicine’s “Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic and Medicine” six-panel exhibit that explores the world of the historical roots of “Harry Potter,” a modern literary sensation. Science teachers and educators will take away ideas for Harry Potter-inspired activities they can use in their lesson plans. NB: All children must be accompanied by an adult.
