Want to “Be a Biologist?” GSK’s Science in the Summer is back!

GSK Science in the Summer is a FREE, informal science program for children entering grades 2-6, sponsored by GSK and administered by The Franklin Institute. The program is designed to inspire students to become the next generation of scientists and engineers, through hand-on explorations based in real science careers.

Registration is done through an online lottery. Please enter the lottery by following this link beginning May 9 to the Science in the Summer website. Entering the lottery is not a guarantee of selection, and you may be placed on a waitlist. Children must be entered individually. If you have been selected, you will be notified in mid-June. This year’s theme is biology.

The program will be in person at the New Hope-Solebury Library, on Thursday, July 7, and Friday, July 8, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. This is a two-day program, and attendance on both days is mandatory.
