Is there witchcraft and wizardry in the real world?

You may think that magic and spells only exist in your favourite books and movies. But can we make magic in the real world? This resource investigates how you can use science to make things change colour and state, or even disappear.

The activities are introduced with a quick objective and a preparation guide. Individuals or groups can then work through the challenges to achieve the results. The main subject topics are biology and chemistry.

Background information, extension ideas and top tips are provided, together with student guides and instructions. This resource has been created by STEM Learning to support the STEM Clubs Programme and has been developed in partnership with STEM Club leaders.
