I came across another science summer program, and of course, it’s free!

GlaxoSmithKline, a multinational health care and pharmaceutical company, sponsors a science summer program in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington, DC, Baltimore, and North Carolina. The program, which is hosted at various organizations including the Boys and Girls club and local libraries, uses science experiments to get children interested in the sciences.

    <GlaxoSmithKline's Science in the Summer is a fun and free science education program that helps elementary school children in the Metropolitan Washington, DC/Baltimore area “grow into science.” Through classes held in local public libraries and other community-based organizations and taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about learning science with hands-on experiments. GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer is sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and administered by American Association for the Advancement of Science in partnership with community-based organizations.

You can find out more about each individual program by clicking here. Please pass on information about the program to anyone who would find this program helpful. Also, if you know about any free S.T.E.M. resources, please let me know in the comments or send me an email.
