Explore all GSK Science in the Summer™ activities and resources from years past! Content is listed chronologically.
Be an Engineer!
The 2021 Be an Engineer! program invites children to play the role of engineers and discover the importance of engineering to fields as varied as electrical, structural, environmental, and biomedical engineering. The sessions encourage students to practice scientific techniques and explore basic principles of engineering as they solve real-world problems by doing at-home experiments.
Be a Chemist!
The 2020 Be a Chemist! program invites children to play the role of chemists and discover the importance of chemistry to fields as varied as medicine, manufacturing, art, and environmental conservation. The sessions encourage students to practice scientific techniques and explore basic principles of chemistry as they investigate these questions: How do substances change and interact with each other? How do chemists use these changes and interactions to solve real-world problems?
Science of Me
The 2019 Science of Me program invites children to explore 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.
Science of Space
The 2018 Science of Space program invites children to observe the sky above them. Through fun hands-on activities, students explore the sun’s energy, the phases of the moon, human survival in space, and how rockets overcome Earth’s gravity.
Science of Sports
The 2017 Science of Sports program invites children to explore the role of science, technology, engineering, and math in sports. Through engaging hands-on activities, students discover that athletes need to be physically fit, mentally fit, and properly equipped to excel. At the same time, students learn how athletes are supported by a broad and diverse network of STEM professionals.
