It's Electric! Science in the Summer is back!

We are pleased to announce that Science in the Summer is back! 

From the press release:

 Delaware County Libraries Welcome GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer: Elementary School Students to Discover Physical Science & Electricity 

 Registration May 1 – May 31 – Space is Limited 

WHO Delaware County students entering second through sixth grade are invited to register and attend GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer program, a free and fun experiment-oriented course taught by certified teachers to groups of 16 students in two age groups: children entering second and third grades (Level I) and children entering fourth through sixth grades (Level II). GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer is sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and administered by the Franklin Institute in partnership with local libraries. 

WHAT GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer program will teach Delaware County students about Physical Science and Electricity, answering questions such as “How do magnets work?”, “What is a magnetic force field?”, and “What makes electricity?”. Students will make a compass, an electromagnet and use an electrostatic generator. This course teaches about magnetism, static electricity, electrical currents and circuits. Discover why it’s a hair-raising experience! GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer program consists of four 45-minute classes given over the course of a week. Sessions are offered in the morning (Level I: 10 - 10:45 a.m., Level II: 11:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.) and in the afternoon (Level I: 2:00 - 2:45 p.m., Level II: 3:00 - 3:45 p.m.). See below for course dates. 

WHY GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer opens young minds to the world of science and fosters a life-long appreciation of learning. Over 100,000 students from the Greater Philadelphia region have participated in GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer since its inception. 

Lansdowne Public Library will host the classes July 16 - 19 (a.m. only)
