Through its GSK Science in the Summer™ program, Winston-Salem’s SciWorks is offering kids the opportunity to participate in a free, one-day chemistry camp.
GSK Science in the Summer™ is a free science education program sponsored by GSK that helps elementary school children “grow into science.” Through classes held in public libraries, science centers/museums and other community-based organizations, the program gets kids excited about learning science with hands-on experiments.
GSK Science in the Summer™ started nearly three decades ago in the Greater Philadelphia Area, and expanded to North Carolina, Metropolitan Washington, DC and Baltimore, and Pittsburgh. In 2015, GSK partnered with AAAS to expand the program to 12 more locations nationally.
This summer, SciWorks and Winston-Salem Recreation and Parks centers partnered to offer chemistry workshops for students in rising 2nd-6th grades at recreation center sites throughout Forsyth County. During the week of August 10-14, special one-day camps will be offered at SciWorks.
Participants can register now for the one-day camps on site at SciWorks! Camps are held from 9 am to 4 pm on August 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14. These camps are FREE for rising 2nd-6th graders. Through hands-on experiments, young chemists will learn what matter is and how it changes. They will observe physical and chemical changes with fun experiments, make “Gloop” and explore the museum.
Campers can register at the SciWorks Admissions Desk, or contact Kelli Isenhour at 336/714-7106 or kisenhour [at] sciworks.org.
