Have you ever wondered how a bicycle gear works or wanted to build your own rollercoaster?? Then join us for some hands-on, experiment oriented science fun this summer at the library as GlaxoSmithKline presents in partnership with The Franklin Institute, Science in the Summer-Simple Machines! Science in the Summer will take place at the Narberth Community Library July 23-26th.
Children will be introduced to the world of Physics using six kinds of simple machines including the lever, inclined plane, screw, wheel, pulley & gear! Students will have the chance to build and experiment with different kinds of simple machines using a variety of materials including Legos, K’nex and more.
The classes are divided up into two age-levels so kids can get the most out of their experience. Level 1 will meet from 10-10:45 am and is for students going into grades 2 &3 in the fall. Level 2 meets from 11:15am to Noon and is for those going into Fall grades 4-6. Narberth will be hosting Science in the Summer July 23rd-26th and we request that students be able to attend all 4 days if they wish to participate.
Registration is underway now! Space is limited and classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. This year Narberth residents will be given first priority for spots but they must sign-up by June 23rd. Parents or legal guardians must come to the library in person to sign their children up for the class.
