Muggle Magic: Event combining Harry Potter and science to be held in Pocatello

The Idaho Museum of Natural History (IMNH) is hosting its annual, Muggle Magic, event from 11am-3pm on October 24, 2015. Muggle Magic combines the iconic world of Harry Potter with natural science.

On Saturday, the museum will transform into the IMNH School of Nature and Science. Upon entry, students will be sorted into different areas of the museum representing different courses. Children will be introduced to wand making using Idaho native trees, meet toads and snakes, and learn about Muggle creatures that look like dragons! School will be held in two sessions on October 24th at 11 am and 1 pm at the museum.

“We are very excited to bring back Muggle Magic this year” says IMNH Education Specialist, Becky Hansis-O’Neill, “The overlap between real animals and the abilities of fantastical beasts allows us to spark young imaginations in a unique and effective way.”

In addition to all the fun associated with Muggle Magic, the museum will also be auctioning off a 3-D printed dragon skeleton. Raffle tickets will be available during Muggle Magic.
