Science in the Summer—Be a Biologist!

The Free Library of Philadelphia is excited to share that we are once again offering Science in the Summer in person this summer! Thirty-three libraries will host this free, hands-on, fun science education program, presented by GSK in partnership with the Franklin Institute. Taught by certified teachers, this program is designed for children entering grades 2-6. This summer's theme is Be a Biologist!

There will be two programming options to participate in this summer. Some libraries will offer the program in one day for 4.5 hours from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and lunch will be provided.

At other libraries, the program will be delivered in two workshops offered over two consecutive days for two hours each. Times for these programs will vary by location. Participating children must be available for both days of the program.

Philadelphia families may register their children in the online lottery from May 9 to June 3, 2022. All participating children must be pre-registered.

Science in the Summer programming will take place in neighborhood libraries from July 5 to August 12, 2022.

For more information, visit, stop by your neighborhood library location, or call Youth Services and Programs at 215-686-5372.
