Children's Science Adventures at Fermilab Offer Summer Fun - and Learning, Too!
BATAVIA, Illinois-Summertime is a bright season of adventure and discovery for children, and now is the perfect time to add Science Adventures to your children's schedule of discoveries for June, July and August at the Leon Lederman Science Education Center, at the Department of Energy's Fermilab.
Parents can find adventures for Kindergarteners through seventh graders, with sessions lasting from a couple of hours to a full five-day week. Adventures are led by teachers from surrounding communities, members of Fermilab's Education Office, and other professionals. A sampling, just in June:
And it's never too early to plan for next school year! Does your school have special interest days, family science nights or after-school science programs? In July and August, the Education Office offers "Hands-On Science for School Volunteers, Grades K-5." Parent-Teacher Association volunteers can qualify to borrow a set of hands-on activities! Free delivery, pickup and loan of a set of five exhibits that demonstrate the concepts of momentum and acceleration. Send a minimum of two representatives from your PTA for training (fees are $10 per person). Sign up at the "Science Adventures" home page.
