Carnegie Science Center hosting camp at Sharpsburg library

Sharpsburg Community Library will have a Science in the Summer camp through the Carnegie Science Center in July. Registration is open online.

Elementary school students in the Lower Valley can spend a week at the Sharpsburg Community Library learning more about DNA, food as fuel and biological blueprints.

The Science in the Summer Camp, hosted by Carnegie Science Center, will be July 22-25 at the library, 1212 Main Street.

The experiment-oriented sessions are free and aimed at children in grades two-six.

The four-day camp will explore biological systems that make humans alike and the elements that interact to create differences, organizers said.

There will be plenty of hands-on discovery through which children will learn how the body uses food and oxygen, and, how DNA works.

Children in grades two and three will meet from 3 to 4 p.m.; those in grades four to six will meet from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Space is limited. Register online at or in person.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

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. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

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. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
