Science activities and reading from Isaac the Alchemist, Secrets of Isaac Newton, Reveal’d

In the apothecary’s workshop, he could watch what he - and everyone else in those times - believed was magic. But what, exactly, did apothecaries and alchemists do? Why did they believe it was magic? And how could someone who believed in magic—and grew up to be the world’s greatest alchemist—also discover the secrets of the universe?
Find out at the Magick and Alchemy Show and Reading by children’s author Mary Losure, author of ‘Isaac the Alchemist: Secrets of Isaac Newton, Reveal’d’.
