GSK Science in the Summer

GSK Science in the Summer invites kids in the Washington, DC metro area to "Be a Chemist." 

Discover the importance of chemistry to medicine, manufacturing, art, and environmental conservation.  Explore chemical reactions, produce new products from the reactions, observe how substances change, and use those changes to solve real-world problems.  

GSK Science in the Summer will be virtual this summer beginning in late July.  AAAS is working with its Science in the Summer partners (listed below) to distribute activity kits in a way that works best for each location, following the guidance/protocols set by each organization and area.    

AAAS has prepared an online program to help kids (and adults) do the activities.  Parents/guardians can also download a paper copy here if you don't have access to a computer.

Parents/guardians can pick up an activity kit at our partner locations.  Click on one of the partners listed above and find out how to get an activity kit.  Then log on to the online program that includes instructions and videos to help you be a chemist.  Once logged in, click "Present" in the right hand corner of the first slide, and you're ready to explore!  Use the paper version of the program to guide you as well.
