Exploring the Science of Harry Potter

Saturday, May 12, 2018
1–4 p.m.
Logan Heights Branch Library
567 S 28th St., San Diego, CA 92113

One of the reasons magic seems so real in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series is because the science behind the magic is integrated so seamlessly. In this class, we will explore the science and magic of the world of Harry Potter through video clips, presentations, discussions and group play-acting. Topics include genetics and trait prediction (parseltongue, giants and squibs), acid/base chemistry (Marauder’s Map), fantastic beasts and herbology.

Mysteries of the Human Genome

Saturday, May 19, 2018
2:30–5:30 p.m.
Logan Heights Branch Library
567 S 28th St., San Diego, CA 92113

Why are your eyes brown and her eyes green? Why is your hair so curly? What does your blood type mean? Will your brother go bald? In this class, we learn about the basics of DNA—the instruction manual for all cells—and how it impacts the way traits are passed from one generation to the next. We will create mixed-media art pieces to showcase important cell cycles, and we will use fun interactive models to learn about inheritance and variance. Students will play Sherlock Holmes to decode a series of genetic mysteries and will come up with their own gripping short stories showing how murders can be solved using biological techniques. No prior experience is necessary.
