Science in the Summer - Science of Me

GSK in partnership with the Franklin Institute and the Free Library of Philadelphia once again offers Science In the Summer! This year Science in the Summer will be completely virtual, with the theme Be a Chemist!

This online take on Science in the Summer will include a combination of pre-recorded videos – shared on a dedicated website – and live, interactive virtual sessions, where participants will be able to discuss their experiences. Experiments and activities posted to the Science in the Summer website have been designed so that they can be done with common household objects.

While anyone will be able to access the website or register for the live sessions, families can also sign up for a lottery, in which those selected will receive Science in the Summer bags, which will contain materials to do one of the experiments, along with printed instructions. Selected recipients would then pick up their Science In the Summer bags at a specific library, at a designated date and time.

Lottery registration will take place online Monday, June 29 through Wednesday, July 8. You can sign up here! Once you have entered, you will receive further instructions, including when and where will pick up your Science in the Summer bag if chosen.

The material distributions would likely occur between July 20 and July 24, with the live programs set to run July 27-August 14.
