I'm going to use potting soil for an experiment with worms. Will the fertilizer in the potting soil hurt the worms?

Yes fertilizer could hurt worms depending on what's in the fertilizer. A chemical fertilizer certainly would hurt worms whereas, a natural fertilizer is much less likely to.
Would you like to share your project with us? That way I may be better able to help you. What question are you asking using the worms? What kind of worms - whatever is naturally present in soil or will you add some of a specific kind?
