Department Overview

The Science for Kids program (SFK), which was initiated in the summer of 2004, is a collaboration with former Swarthmore College music professor John Alston H'15 and the Chester Children's Chorus.

During the chorus' 5-week summer camp on Swarthmore's campus, about half the chorus members participate in on-campus science workshops taught by Swarthmore faculty, instructors, and undergraduate SFK counselors.

Swarthmore students and faculty who are interested in contributing to this exciting new science education initiative should address their questions to Deb Bergstrand, Faculty Coordinator for SFK, or the Chester Children's Chorus.
