GSK Science in the Summer™ program is coming to The City of Hallandale Beach’s Hepburn Center, hosted by Museum of Discovery and Science.
The GSK Science in the Summer™ program, which has been bringing free, hands-on science classes to elementary-aged students in a handful of select East Coast cities for nearly 30 years, has partnered with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to expand the program nationally. The program is sponsored by GSK and administered by AAAS in conjunction with Association of Science-Technology Centers-member museums and science centers. The Museum of Discovery and Science is one of 12 new science centers/museums to host GSK Science in the Summer™ in 2015.
Each of the host science centers will use the GSK Science in the Summer™ chemistry curriculum. The course is targeted at students entering second through sixth grades and is led by science educators. The national GSK Science in the Summer™ program will teach students the basics of chemistry through hands-on experiments. Young scientists will learn what matter is and that it is not always the same. They will observe physical and chemical changes with fun, interactive experiments. Students also will decide if substances are acids, bases, or neutrals by using litmus and pH papers and a universal indicator.
