Science in the Summer - Bioscience

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. The theme will be announced in 2017.

The program is delivered in two workshops offered over two days; and each workshop is two hours long. That's two days of summer fun designed to help elementary school children "grow into science" with exciting, hands-on, teacher-directed experimentation.

Participating children must be available for both days. Classes for young children (grades 2 & 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.

Some Saturday sessions are available. Again, participating children must be available for both sessions.

There will be online registration this year! There will be an announcement when registration opens, and all participating children must be preregistered. You can register from work, or home, or come into any of our libraries to use or public computers. The first session will begin at the end of June.
