Science in the Summer registration begins at 30 libraries across Montgomery County.  Please visit www.scienceinthesummer.com for dates and times.

Who:
Montgomery County students entering second through sixth grade are invited to register and attend GSK Science in the Summer™, a free, hands-on enrichment program that makes learning about science fun. Sponsored by GSK and administered by The Franklin Institute in partnership with local libraries, the experiment-oriented courses are taught by certified teachers to classes of 16 students in two age groups: children entering second and third grades (Level I), and children entering fourth through sixth grades (Level II).

What:
GSK Science in the Summer™ program will teach Montgomery County students the basics of Oceanography. Through hands-on activities, students will learn about the underwater environment and that it is teeming with life. Young scientists will observe microscopic sea life, such as plankton, using microviewers and magnifying glasses. Students will examine and touch seashells, sponges, corals, sea stars and other animals found in the ocean — even real shark teeth!

Why
GSK Science in the Summer™ opens young minds to the world of science and fosters a life-long appreciation of learning. Now in its 29th year, GSK Science in the Summer™ encourages elementary students to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning through hands-on activities and stimulating coursework. More than 125,000 students from the Greater Philadelphia Area have participated in GSK Science in the Summer since its inception.

In Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow, Stella’s father, who owns a candy store, asks Stella to taste test a new kind of gum called Magical Glow-in-the-Dark chewing gum. Stella can’t wait to try it out, but thinks it brings her bad luck!

Read any or all of the books in the Stella Batts series by Courtney Sheinmel and illustrated by Jennifer A. Bell and come to the Roslyn Library on Monday, May 4, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to discuss the books and do some craft projects.

Basic Drawing Class

Learning to Draw StickmenThursdays, from 7-8:30 p.m., April 9, 23, 30, May 14 & 28, 2015
Led by Earl Weldon

Class size is limited to 20. We're asking the waitlisted people from last September's course first!

Register for this FREE series at Abington Free Library, 1030 Old York Road, Abington, PA 19001, email kburnham@mclinc.org, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15 or here.

April 9 - Creating 3-D space on a 2-D sheet of paper - Using size, overlapping, 1- and 2-point perspective to create the illusion of depth in drawing

April 23 - Seeing and rendering light and shadow - Discussion of light and how it defines form for our eyes

April 30 - Bringing the drawing to life - Shading techniques, blurring, hatching, cross-hatching, etc.

May 14 - Learning to see - Breaking free of mental conventions, attention to negative space

May 28 - Working both ends from the middle - Experimenting with adding both the lights AND the darks ... a drawing exercise with white chalk and pencil/charcoal on grey paper

 

All sessions have an initial teaching segment, followed by drawing time. Students can bring in additional drawings, done during the week and utilizing the prior week’s skill, which Earl can critique for them.

Starting with the first class, bring:

  • at least 3 sharpened pencils (#2 pencils are fine)
  • 3 or 4 sheets of paper at least 9” x 12” but not bigger than 11” x 17”
  • Eraser (if there are good erasers on your pencils, that’s fine, or bring a separate  eraser, hard or kneaded)

 
Later in the classes we’ll also want:  

  • at least 3 better quality drawing pencils of different leads
  • a kneaded eraser
  • a sketch pad at least 9” x 12”
  • several sheets of 9” x 12” light or medium grey paper 
  • white drawing chalk

Register for this FREE series at Abington Free Library, 1030 Old York Road, Abington, PA 19001, email kburnham@mclinc.org, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15 or here.

April 9 - Creating 3-D space on a 2-D sheet of paper - Using size, overlapping, 1- and 2-point perspective to create the illusion of depth in drawing

April 23 - Seeing and rendering light and shadow - Discussion of light and how it defines form for our eyes

April 30 - Bringing the drawing to life - Shading techniques, blurring, hatching, cross-hatching, etc.

May 14 - Learning to see - Breaking free of mental conventions, attention to negative space

May 28 - Working both ends from the middle - Experimenting with adding both the lights AND the darks ... a drawing exercise with white chalk and pencil/charcoal on grey paper

 

All sessions have an initial teaching segment, followed by drawing time. Students can bring in additional drawings, done during the week and utilizing the prior week’s skill, which Earl can critique for them.

Starting with the first class, bring:

  • at least 3 sharpened pencils (#2 pencils are fine)
  • 3 or 4 sheets of paper at least 9” x 12” but not bigger than 11” x 17”
  • Eraser (if there are good erasers on your pencils, that’s fine, or bring a separate  eraser, hard or kneaded)

Science in the Summer registration begins for the 40 sessions happening in Montgomery County Libraries from June 22nd-July 30th.  Visit www.scienceinthesummer.com to find a session near you!

Who:
Montgomery County students entering second through sixth grade are invited to register and attend GSK Science in the Summer™, a free, hands-on enrichment program that makes learning about science fun. Sponsored by GSK and administered by The Franklin Institute in partnership with local libraries, the experiment-oriented courses are taught by certified teachers to classes of 16 students in two age groups: children entering second and third grades (Level I), and children entering fourth through sixth grades (Level II).

What:
GSK Science in the Summer™ program will teach Montgomery County students the basics of Oceanography. Through hands-on activities, students will learn about the underwater environment and that it is teeming with life. Young scientists will observe microscopic sea life, such as plankton, using microviewers and magnifying glasses. Students will examine and touch seashells, sponges, corals, sea stars and other animals found in the ocean — even real shark teeth!

Why
GSK Science in the Summer™ opens young minds to the world of science and fosters a life-long appreciation of learning. Now in its 29th year, GSK Science in the Summer™ encourages elementary students to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning through hands-on activities and stimulating coursework. More than 125,000 students from the Greater Philadelphia Area have participated in GSK Science in the Summer since its inception.

Why Rain Barrels?

Rain Barrel painted yellow with purple flowersPresented by the Abington Environmental Advisory Council

Learn how you can make a difference. Attend our workshop: Monday, June 8, from 7-8 pm
Registration begins May 18.

You will learn...

Why you need a Rain Barrel

  • You can help the environment by collecting the rain-water from your roof and gutters with a rain barrel.
  • Rain barrels help lessen flooding, pollution and erosion.
  • With less rain-water running-off the land, less pollution will flow into our creeks and rivers.
  • Collecting and using your rain-water can also save you money on your water and sewer bills.

To register for this free program, please call 215-886-9818, register online here, visit Roslyn Branch Library, 2412 Avondale Avenue, Roslyn, PA 19001 or email cfrankford@mclinc.org.
