GSK Science in the Summer™ program in North Carolina is a fun and free science education initiative that helps elementary and middle school children “grow into science.” Through classes held at public libraries and community-based centers in 10 North Carolina counties and taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about studying science with hands-on experiments.

The theme for the 2020 Science in the Summer series is “Chemistry is Everywhere.” Participating students will spend time exploring chemistry through hands-on activities and experiments. From discovering polymers with color-changing slime to investigating how zombie worms use chemicals to survive, students will explore the everyday world of chemistry. Through hands-on activities using common materials, they’ll learn that almost everything they do is connected to science!
