Elizabethtown College’s mission is to Educate for Service. The goal of the Science in Motion program is to provide private and public schools with science equipment, resources, teaching support and professional development that are too costly for a single school district to finance alone. Elizabethtown College is proud to be part of the Science in Motion consortium, which is comprised of 10 colleges and universities from across PA. Our program focuses predominantly on serving schools in Berks, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and Schuylkill counties. Science in Motion is one more way to serve local communities and help middle/high schools by providing state of the art science equipment and resources. The Science in Motion program is housed within the College's Department of Education and is funded through a grant from the PA Department of Education and the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.
