Science in the Summer

GSK Science in the Summer in Pittsburgh

When school is out, science is in! GSK Science in the Summer keeps the learning going for students entering second through sixth grade.

This program will be offered virtually this year, with Carnegie Science Center working with 10 local libraries to provide supplies and curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to complete lessons and experiments from home as they explore chemistry as it relates to their world.

Up to 20 registered families from each participating library’s community will receive a chemistry experiment kit to use at home. These kits can be picked up at the library via curbside pick-up (walk-up or drive-up). Arrangements can be made if families are unable to pick up their kit from the library; please contact the library for more information.

The activity kits are designed to be self-led and include supplies, a guide, and access to supplemental videos. In addition, students will have the opportunity to participate in live virtual feedback sessions via Zoom with fellow student scientists and a Science on the Road educator.
