Free STEM Program Extends Summer Fun This Fall At Sci-Tech For Families

We have an exciting and free opportunity for families this fall for children in 2nd – 6th grade.   GSK Science in the Summer™ is a two-hour, hands-on science program led by Sci-Tech Discovery Center educators designed to increase children’s value of and confidence in doing science and pursuing STEM careers

This year’s Be a Chemist! theme invites children to play the role of chemists and discover the importance of chemistry to fields as varied as medicinal, art, and environmental sciences.  Students learn how environmental scientists clean up contaminated water and create natural dyes from plants and animal shells as they discover how chemical reactions work.

The Franklin Institute and the University of North Carolina Morehead Planetarium and Science Center partner with GSK to bring Science in the Summer™ to 27 locations across the country. Sci-Tech Discovery Center has been chosen as a location for the past 4 summers with themes including The Science of Space, The Science of Me, The Science of Sports, The Science of Electricity & Magnetism. Sci-Tech is honored to be one of 27 centers in the country hosting the free GSK Science in the Summer™ national program for children entering grades 2-6. For more information about the GSK Science in the Summer™ program, visit their site.

Workshops will cap at 10 children and will follow Sci-Tech’s thorough cleaning and safety policies.
