GSK Science in the Summer™ is a free, informal science summer program for children entering grades 2-6. Supported by GSK and offered in collaboration with The Franklin Institute, the goal of Science in the Summer is to increase children's interest and confidence in doing science and pursuing STEM careers, especially for children from backgrounds currently underrepresented in STEM fields. The Franklin Institute supports organization to fold the program into their existing structures and increase their educators’ confidence and skills to lead high-quality STEM programming.
In 2023, TFI reached over 29,000 youth at the local and national levels. Click here to explore the 2023 youth and educator impact data.
