GSK Science in the Summer

Be an engineer at home this summer! 

This summer the GSK Science in the Summer™ Be an Engineer program will be offered virtually in the greater Philadelphia area. Through online videos and at-home experiments, children can take on the roles of different engineers to solve real-world problems. Children can then join virtual research team meetings with Franklin Institute scientists and educators to share their results. Be an Engineer is designed for children ages 7-13, and we invite your whole family to explore together at home! 

Families in the greater Philadelphia area may enter an online lottery from May 3 – May 21, 2021, to receive a free kit of science materials from a local library. Kits will include materials for the Environmental and Electrical Engineer activities. Additional online content is available for continued exploration with the Structural and Biomedical Engineer activities. Please note that if you are not selected in the lottery, all activity guides, materials lists, and videos will be shared online, so you can still assemble your own materials and have fun being engineers at home!
