GSK Science in the Summer™ is a fun and free science education program sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline and administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which introduces students to the wonderful and fascinating world of science.

Most kids know that athletic ability leads to success in sports.  The Science of Sports will show them that science is another way to get in the game.

Students will discover how science help athletes perform in their sports. They will participate in challenges (balance, stability, reaction time) to understand physical and mental skills that can be helpful in sports and learn about the importance of good nutrition. Students will learn how science is involve in the design of sports equipment. They will create profile cards of their own ultimate athlete or sports scientist.
