GSK Science in the Summer™

Free, fun, hands-on summer science

For Grades 2 - 6

In 2016, GSK Science in the Summer™ students at sites across the country will learn about electricity and magnetism. GSK Science in the Summer™ teaches elementary students the core principles of science and seeks to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning through fun, engaging activities. The program also works to give your child a quality learning experience during the summer months.

Students will:

  • Learn what makes materials magnetic.
  • Observe how permanent magnets work.
  • Build their own circuits.
  • Construct electric-powered devices.
  • Create an electromagnet to understand more about how magnetism and electrical currents are interrelated, and how we make use of these phenomena in our daily lives.
