On Monday June 27at 1:00, children will discover the properties of magnetism by exploring the tiny building blocks of all matter: atoms and molecules, playing with magnets and magnetic force fields and making a compass and will also learn about static electricity using pushy balloons and sticky packing peanuts, playing with volts and jolts and indoor mini lightning bolts while exploring the secrets of "shocking" science. On WednesdayJune 29 at 1:00 children will learn about electricity, what makes things light up, the flow of electrons, building circuits with surprising materials and experiment with switches, motors, buzzers and gadgets, electromagnets, insulators and conductors, the stop-and-go of electric circuitry. These programs are sponsored by a grant from GlaxoSmithKline Foundation.
