Students will channel their favorite Harry Potter character and join Potions class at Hogwarts to experiment with a variety of mixtures and chemical reactions. Students will receive vials to create their own collection of potions ingredients (basilisk venom, ground hippogriff claws, etc.). They will follow recipe instructions to create their potions -- some lovely, some disgusting -- and they will follow in the footsteps of the Half-Blood Prince, tweaking the recipes to see what happens. In this context of fun mischief-making, students will practice following written instructions, measuring carefully, and designing and carrying out experiments. (All materials are non-toxic household materials known to muggles as dish soap, baking soda, etc.)
