Event Details

Join us for some Harry Potter Science. This Includes classes in defence against the dark arts (aka lab safety), care of magical creatures (aka zoology – sure aren’t all creatures magical…), herbology (looking at the medicinal properties of herbs and spices and designing herb bags), the children all make snot of some sort using slime recipes . We will also have a charm lesson where the children make a colour changing pH sensitive tea which bubbles, fizzes and changes colour a number of times. The children all make a special invisible ink, write on paper and leave the paper to dry, using special revealing liquid to rub on the paper. All of the science is explained and how we can use science to appear magic. Also special effects in movies are explored. There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class !! There are six workshops on this date in Athlone. THESE WORKSHOPS ARE FULLY BOOKED UP BUT YOU CAN ADD YOUR NAME TO A WAITING LIST BY EMAILING
