  • 2018 Program Topic: The Science of Space

    The Science of Space invites children to see the sky above them. Through active, hands-on learning, students explore the sun’s energy, the phases of the moon, human survival in space, and how rockets overcome Earth’s gravity. From here on Earth, we look up and see the sun and moon. From here, we dream of space travel. From here, we achieve liftoff.

    GSK Science in the Summer™ has been offering exciting science experiences in Philadelphia-area libraries since 1986, and The Franklin Institute has been a proud partner and administrator of the program since 2012.

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