The Adventures of C.A.B. attended GSK’s Science in the Summer program at the DC library at Capitol View. This is a 4 hour free program that takes place over four days. The program has two levels; Level 1 for second and third graders from 2:30 -3:30 and Level 2 for fourth to sixth graders from 3:30 – 4:30pm. The students are given a knapsak, a workbook covering the materials taught in class, pencil, and safety goggles for the experiments.  C.A.B. and I dropped in on day three when they were covering Isaac Newton’s Law of Motion. The teacher explained the three tenets of the Laws of Motion in a way that the children understood.  We also did two experiments to reinforce the laws of motion. I was just as excited. One experiment consisted of a tablet cold medicine, water, small container, and a cork screw. The adults helped the children crush the tablet and put it in the container; next wept the top on and placed the corkscrew on top. then we waited for the pop. We all were amazed, excited, and engaged.
