Science in the Summer 2016

Written by Regina Fried on . Posted in All, Announcements, Bucks County

chem-3-smGSK Science in the Summer™ returns to 16 locations in the Bucks County Library System, starting in June. This year, Bucks County elementary students have the opportunity to take a course in chemistry. Students will observe physical and chemical changes with fun experiments, like instantly freezing objects using dry ice. They’ll also discover how diapers hold a lot of liquid, create secret messages using iodine and lemon juice, and learn about chemical reactions by making gloop!

GSK Science in the Summer™, in partnership with The Franklin Institute, is a free science education program that helps elementary school children “grow into science.” Through classes held in public libraries and other community-based organizations, the program gets kids excited about studying science with hands-on experiments. The program has been inspiring young scientists for 30 years and is for children entering grades 2 to 6.
