Thanks to the generous donation from Ephrata National Bank to The S.P.A.R.K.S. Foundation, students at Akron Elementary were treated to a day of hands-on science presented by Science Explorers, Inc.
The exciting day kicked off with a 50-minute “Tooling Around with Science” assembly. In this fun, in­teractive presentation, which used volunteers from the audience, stu­dents learned about tools that scientists use when they perform experiments for research. How many kinds of tools can you think of? There are tools that measure weight and length, ones that measure temperature, tools that magnify things from the miniscule to the very large, and a few others.
