GSK Science in the Summer

Join Alexandria Library at Beatley Central this summer for a fun and free science education program that helps elementary school children "grow into science." Taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about studying science with hands-on experiments. GSK Science in the Summer program is in partnership with the American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS).


Students will discover how science helps athletes perform, participate in challenges, and build models to understand the science behind protective sports equipment.
