Harry Potter and the Periodic Table

by Toby Swaford, K-12 Eudcation Coordiantor

It’s no secret that the museum staff has its fair share of Harry Potter fans.  That’s why we’re thrilled to learn that Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is not only a fan of Tom Lehrer (another favorite of certain staff members) but choose to perform Lehrer’s famous chemistry song, “The Elements,” on a recent talk show appearance.  Harry Potter singing the Periodic Table – now that’s magic!

And for those of you who like a visual:
