Elizabethtown College’s mission is to Educate for Service. The goal of the Science in Motion program is to provide partner schools with science resources, teaching support and professional development that are too costly for a single school district to finance alone. Elizabethtown College is pleased to be part of Science in Motion. It is another way that we can serve our community and help our partner schools in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and Schuylkill counties by offering the very best science instruction. The Science in Motion program in housed within the College's Department of Education.
