Science in the Summer - Level I

Last date: Thursday, July 18, 2013, 1:15 p.m. (see all dates)

Science in the Summer at the DC Public LibraryHow 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."   

All children must register to attend Science in the Summer classes. Classes are small so be sure to register early! Parents must register their child in person. There is also a limit of 15 students for each session and students are selected to participate on a first-come, first served basis.

This Level 1 course is for children entering grades 2 and 3 during the 2013-2014 school year. 

The course will take place in four sessions, each one building upon the other. The course runs July 15-18.
