  • The 2019 program theme will be The Science of Me, which invites children to explore both the biological systems that make humans fundamentally alike and the elements that interact to create a unique individual. Through engaging, hands-on exploration, students discover how food becomes our body’s fuel, where oxygen goes when we breathe it, how our brains interpret the world, and what role DNA plays in making us who we are.

    Registration details for Philadelphia-area programs and locations will be updated in spring 2019.  Visit to register for the program when available.

  • GSK Science in the SummerTM is made possible with generous support from GSK.
