Though school is out for a few more weeks, some Bridgeville-area children spent last week learning about the human body through Carnegie Science Center’s Science in the Summer program at Bridgeville Public Library.

The theme for this summer’s program is “The Science of Me.”

Students learned about the circulatory system through various exercises. They also examined a sheep’s heart and simulated how health problems are diagnosed using a salad spinner centrifuge and fake blood samples. Other topics covered were digestion, the brain and DNA.

Science in the Summer is sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline and administered by the Franklin Institute in partnership wth the science center.

The free program, for those entering second through sixth grades, will be visiting South Fayette Township Public Library from Aug. 13-16.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
