Initially launched in Philadelphia, GSK Science in the Summer™ has been operating in a handful of East Coast cities for nearly 30 years, and has experienced such success that it has expanded nationally for 2015. Science Central was chosen as one of the science centers to help administer this successful program to northeast Indiana.

For the past two months, Science Central has been hosting GSK Science in the Summer™ workshops throughout northeast Indiana. This is the last workshop to be hosted this year.
