So rather than me tell you about some fancy new scientific invention or discovery today, instead I'm going to
tell you about a program you can send your kids to which may help them develop an appreciation for science.
Each year, the Pottstown Regional Public Library hosts a program for young scientists organized around a different theme and sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline and administered by The Franklin Institute.
This year's theme is Genetics.
I can vouch for the quality of this program as my son participated in it until he grew too old.
It will be held at the Pottstown Regional Public Library from July 22 through July 25.
Registration began on June 17 and ends on July 9.
Morning sessions for grades 2-3 are from 10 to 10:45 a.m. and from 11:15 to 12 p.m. for grades 4-6.
Afternoon sessions for grades 2-3 are from 2 to 2:45 p.m. and for grades 4-6 from 3:15 to 4 p.m.
The program is free and taught by certified teachers and features hands-on experiments.
Classes are small with 15 students each, so don't dawdle and register today.
