Students will be introduced to the basic concepts of genetics and synthetic biology as they learn about the different traits and qualities of the beasts that wonder the Halls Homequests Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Discussions about JK's werewolves, dementors and banshees will lead to analysis of how to use the best traits of these beasts and other creatures in exploring biomimicry and inventing new ways to live. Robots and other hands-on kinesthetic project based learning will illuminate students' learning.


Along with the sciences, the art of making wands and the lessons behind spells will be important. Students will also make costumes and write stories including their own Harry Potter story chapters and/or skits.
