Science in the Summer, Level 1
How do magnets work? What makes electricity?
Through exciting experiments, you'll work with other girls and boys to make a compass and electromagnet, build circuits with batteries and bulbs, and experience the power of static electricity. Sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline and organizations in the Washington Metro Area, this fun science program helps elementary school children "grow into science".
