Ed the Wizard’s Alchemy Laboratory

December 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Alchemy Laboratory is where Harry Potter meets real science!

Alchemy Class is about to begin, and magical secrets are about to be shared! Enter the Alchemy Laboratory of Ed the Wizard. Watch, volunteer, and learn as we perform vanishes, transfigurations, and other feats of magic with everyday items found at home. We will use three of the four Classical Greek Elements, Earth, Wind, and Water (sorry – no Fire!). Using real science such as Bernoulli’s Principle, Electromagnetism, and Optical effects, learn how to defy gravity, move objects with your mind, change the properties of water, look through solid objects, and more. Participants are challenged with questions about alchemy, scientific principles, and their general knowledge of the physical world.

Recommended for ages 6 and up. The program is approximately 45 minutes in length. Masks are required for all visitors aged 3 and up, regardless of vaccination status. Learn more about Ed the Wizard at www.edthewizard.com.
