GSK Science in the Summer™ 2020: Be A Chemist!


GSK Science in the Summer™ is going virtual! Sign up and your summer learner will receive access to pre-recorded informational videos, packaged kits of material, and live hangouts with our museum educators. So, grab your goggles and get ready to Be A Chemist!

Through hands-on experiments, kids will learn about chemical reactions and the many professions that use chemistry every day. Lessons are divided along two themes and follow an inquiry-based approach. Participants will be well-equipped so that they can continue their explorations at home and at their leisure.

Berkshire Museum is once again partnering with GSK and our partners in the community to offer this hands-on program free of charge at various schools and community locations, creating summer science experiences that spark a lifelong interest in science and STEM careers.

Registration is required. To sign up, please click the above “REGISTER” button, contact our Experience Coordinator Kendra Knisley at [email protected], or click “REGISTER” button below for a specific session.
