Harry Potter's World Hogwarts' Academy - 2011

In Fall of 2011, UNI Rod Library, Cedar Falls Public Library, and Waterloo Public Library hosted Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine, an exhibit meant to reveal the history behind the magical world of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. In celebration of the exhibit coming to the Cedar Valley area, the libraries collaborated with a number of UNI  faculty and staff to host Hogwarts Academy. Hogwarts Academy was an event directed by Dr. Bill Harwood of the UNI Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry geared toward teaching students the real science behind the magic in the Harry Potter series.
