Science in the Summer is a program sponsored by the GlaxoSmithKline Foundation and the Delaware County Library System. The program introduces students to the fun of science. Brief, experiment-oriented courses are taught by certified teachers at participating public libraries.

Children will learn as they participate in fun, hands-on science activities and experiments. 2014’s course is Genetics. It is comprised of four 1 hour classes given over the course of a week. It will be taught by certified science teachers to groups of 16 students in two age groups: those entering Grades 2 and 3 (Level I) and those entering Grades 4-6 (Level II). In libraries where registrants outnumber the allowable group size, a lottery will be held to select participants.

Registration in person is required.
