Science in the Summer - Science of Space

GSK in partnership with The Franklin Institute and the Free Library of Philadelphia once again offers Science In the Summer! Many of our libraries will host this series of free, fun science workshops for children in grades 2–6. This summer’s theme is the Science of Space.

This year there will be two options to participate in Science in the Summer. At some libraries, the program will be delivered in two workshops offered over two days; and each workshop is two hours long. Classes for young children (grades 2 and 3) meet in the mornings from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Classes for older children (grades 4–6) meet in the afternoons from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

At other libraries the 4 hours of the program will be delivered in one day. Participating students will meet in the morning at 10:00 a.m. and stay until 3:00 p.m. Participants in the one day program will be provided with lunch.

Participating children must be available for all days of the program.

Saturday sessions are available at two locations only: Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional Library and Parkway Central Library. Again, participating children must be available for both sessions.

Registration opens on Monday, May 14 at 12:00 p.m. You can sign up here! You can register from work, or home, or come into any of our libraries to use the public computers. The first session begins on Tuesday, June 26th. All participating children must be preregistered.
