Adventure in Science, a non-profit science education program
for children, is planning its 13th year at NIH. The program, which
meets on Saturday mornings October through March in Bldg. 10, is
designed to show youngsters ages 8-11 the fun of science using
hands-on activities, from building (and launching) model rockets
to dissecting frogs. The teachers are mostly volunteers from the
NIH staff, from postdocs to institute directors. A similar program
for children ages 12-15 is available at the National Institutes
of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg.
If you are interested in volunteering to teach in the program,
contact Peter Kellman (301) 496-2513, email@example.com or
Ed Max (301) 827-1806, firstname.lastname@example.org. To enroll your child,
request forms from the 4H office at Montgomery County Cooperative
Extension, (301) 590-9638. Return completed forms promptly, since
the program is oversubscribed every year.
