Science in the Summer - Bioscience
GSK in partnership with The Franklin Institute and the Free Library of Philadelphia once again offers Science In the Summer! 26 of our libraries will host this series of free, fun science workshops for children in grades 2 – 6. This summer’s theme is Bioscience!
The program is delivered in two workshops offered over two days; and each workshop is two hours long. That’s two days of summer fun designed to help elementary school children “grow into science” with exciting, hands-on, teacher-directed experimentation.
Participating children must be available for both days. Classes for young children (grades 2 & 3) meet in the mornings from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Classes for older children (grades 4 – 6) meet in the afternoons from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Saturday sessions are available at two locations only: Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional Library and the Parkway Central Library. Again, participating children must be available for both sessions.
There will be online registration this year! Registration begins Friday, May 6th, 2016 at 12 noon and all participating children must be preregistered. You can register from work, or home, or come into any of our libraries to use or public computers. The first session begins on Tuesday, June 28th.
