SCIENCE IN THE SUMMER - Physical Science: Electricity!
GSK in partnership with The Franklin Institute and the Free Library of Philadelphia once again offers Science In the Summer! 28 of our libraries will host this series of free, fun science workshops for children in grades 2 – 6; and this summer’s theme is Physical Science: Electricity!
The program is delivered in two workshops offered over two days; and each workshop is two hours long. That’s two days of summer fun designed to help elementary school children “grow into science” with exciting, hands-on, teacher-directed experimentation.
Participating children must be available for both days. Classes for young children (grades 2 & 3) meet in the mornings from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Classes for older children (grades 4 – 6) meet in the afternoons from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Saturday sessions (July 11th and July 18th) are available at three locations only: Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional Library, the Lucien E. Blackwell West Philadelphia Regional Library, and the Parkway Central Library. Again, participating children must be available for both sessions.
There will be online registration this year! Registration begins Friday, May 1, 2015 and all participating children must be preregistered. You can register from work, or home, or come into any of our libraries to use or public computers. The first session begins on Thursday, June 25th.
