GSK Science in the Summer

In June 2017, the Uniontown Public Library will host the Science in the Summer Program, a free, hands-on experience made available by GlaxoSmithKline. This four-day program is open to children entering Grade 2 through Grade 6 and will run the week of June 13th.

Science in the Summer invites children to step into the shoes of a Sports Scientist. Participants will perform experiments in chemistry and materials science, explore the ways diet and exercise can affect an athlete, and discover how science can support their favorite player as they achieve. In addition to cool take-home projects, children will come away with a glimpse of a future STEM career in athletics.

All programs will be led by educators from the Carnegie Science Center.

Program Dates: The Science in the Summer program will run June 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th. Each day, separate sessions will be offered for two age groups:

  • 1:00 – 2:00 PM: 2nd and 3rd Grade
  • 2:30 – 3:30 PM: 4th, 5th, and 6th Grade

How to Register: Registration is required for this free program and is limited to 20 children per session. Please note that registration will be for all four days of the program. To sign-up, visit the Childrens Library.

This program is brought to you through the generous support of GlaxoSmithKline
