Monday February 18th was President's Day which means some students were off from school, and some parents were looking for activities to keep them busy.

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum held a one day youth camp for the Harry potter fans in Green Country.

First through fourth graders were invited to spend the day learning about the science and myths surrounding the wildly popular ‘Harry Potter' series.

The camp was all about hands on activities. Youngsters had to register in advance, pack a lunch and be prepared to have fun.

Camper Tate Naumann had a lot to say about what he learned.

"We're talking about the Harry Potter and the dragon and the unicorn. Magic is like science. Science is really fun and I like it. I might be a scientist. When you mix potions together they change colors and it can explode but most stuff doesn't explode on harry potter."

By the way, there's another camp like this scheduled for March 17th, 18th, 19th.  For more information visit the Tulsa Air and Space Museum website.
