As Highfield reminds us, "wizard" actually means wise man - and wizardry and science were closely related fields before Newton. "The Science of Harry Potter" aims to shed light not only on Harry Potter's magical realm, but also on the magic that is taking place in labs and science classrooms in our own "muggle" world.
