Science in the Summer
Published on Monday, May 20, 2013 - 10:16am
Science in the Summer is a fun and free science education program sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline and organizations in the Washington Metro Area. This fun science program helps elementary-school children "grow into science." Through classes held in community sites and taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about studying science with hands-on experiments. Classes are small with 15 students each, so be sure to register early!
This summer, come learn about the world of physical science and electricity:
- Learn how magnets work
- Explore magnetic force fields and electricity through experiments
- Create a compass, electromagnet, and build circuits with batteries and bulbs
- Experience the power of static electricity
