Here's a cool bit of news, kids in grades 2-6 can sign up for a free BioScience class at a local library.
The DC Public Library Summer Reading Program theme for 2014 is "STEAM" which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. As part of the programming, Rosedale Library is hosting free Bioscience classes for children next week, July 14 through 17th. Pre-Registration is required.
The kids will build models of plant and animal cells and learn why cells are important to life. They'll use magnifying glasses and microscopes to examine everyday items in extreme close-up. And they'll learn about bacteria - how some are beneficial and some can be harmful.
Classes start Monday, July 14th and run through Thursday, July 17th at the Library. There are two sessions for different ages:
Level 1 - Grades 2 and 3 - 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Level 2 - Grades 4, 5 and 6 - 3:00 p.m. to 4 p.m.
To sign up, visit the Library at 1701 Gales Street. For more information, call Ms. AnnClaire or Ms. Tammaric at 202-727-5013.
The programs are sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science and DCPL.
