What is it?
GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer is a free science education program that helps elementary school children in the greater Philadelphia area “grow into science.” Through classes held in your local public library, the programgets kids excited about studying science with hands-on experiments.
Science in the Summer is sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in partnership with The Franklin Institute and local libraries.
All children must be pre-registered to attend.
In our research labs, GSK scientists are working to understand the basis of common diseases and why people respond differently to medicines. This knowledge will help GSK discover and develop new medicines to improve the quality of life. For more information, visit http://www.gsk.com/research.html.
