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.

GSK Science in the Summer™ is a is a free science education program sponsored by GSK that helps elementary school children “grow into science.” GSK Science in the Summer™ partners with science centers/museums and community-based organizations – including schools, libraries, homeless shelters, camps, homeschool groups, Boys and Girls Clubs and Native American reservations – to bring hands-on science courses to students.

GSK Science in the Summer™ launched in the Greater Philadelphia Area 30 years ago to engage kids in science at an early age. Since its inception, GSK Science in the Summer™ has reached more than 150,000 students in Philadelphia, North Carolina and Washington, D.C./Baltimore, and launched a national pilot program to reach even more students in 2015. The national program is sponsored by GSK and hosted by leading museums and sciences centers across the country.

GSK Science in the Summer™ teaches elementary students the core principles of science and seeks to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning through fun, engaging activities. The program also works to equalize educational opportunities and mitigate the effects of summer learning loss.
