GSK Science in the Summer

What is it?

GSK Science in the Summer™ program in North Carolina is a fun and free science education program that helps elementary and middle-school children “grow into science.” Through classes held in your local public library or community center and taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about learning science with hands-on experiments. GSK Science in the Summer™ is sponsored by GSK and administered by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center in partnership with local libraries and local community centers. This is the eighth year the program is being held in North Carolina.

All children must be pre-registered to attend GSK Science in the Summer™. A parent must go online to fill out the registration form for her or his child. Children are selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Learn more about North Carolina's GSK Science in the Summer™ course on Oceanography by visiting one of the links below.
