What is it?
GlaxoSmithKline’s 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 and taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about learning science with hands-on experiments. GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer is sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and administered by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center in partnership with local libraries and local parks and recreation departments. This is the sixth year the program is being held in North Carolina.
All children must be pre-registered to attend 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 Science in the Summer course on Genetics.

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/about/about.htm.
