Science in the Summer
Upper Merion Township Library partners with the Franklin Institute and  GlaxoSmithKline to offer Science in the Summer.

Registration tentatively: May 1 - 31, 2015

The GlaxoSmith Kline & Franklin Insitute Science in the Summer program is a free science education program that helps elementary school children in the greater Philadelphia area "grow into science." Comprised of four 45-minute classes given over the course of a week held in the library, the program gets kids excited about studying science with hands-on experiments.

The course is taught by a certified teacher to groups of 16 students in two age groups: children who have completed Grades 2 or 3 (Level I) and for children who have completed Grades 4, 5, or 6 (Level II).

For more information, visit the Science in the Summer website.
