The Laurel Historical Society is one of five community sites selected to offer free science education classes for second- to sixth-graders through GlaxoSmithKline's Science in the Summer program.

Classes will be held Aug. 6 to 9 at the Laurel Museum, 817 Main St. Students will don safety glasses, watch crystals grow, make raisins and popcorn "dance" and more.

GSK's Science in the Summer encourages elementary students to "grow into science" through fun, hands-on, inquiry-based chemistry activities. The program will be administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

A parent or guardian must visit the Laurel Historical Society at the Laurel Museum to complete and sign a registration form. For more information, go to scienceinthesummer.com or call the Laurel Museum at 301-725-7975.
