Calling all student scientists!

What makes us each unique? What are some of the features we all share? Join the Discovery Museum for the Science of Me, brought to you by GSK and The Franklin Institute. We’ll learn about the systems that power our bodies, how we understand the world around us, and how we are all special even as we are all alike. Once we’ve learned about our body systems, we’ll celebrate the ways that we are all amazingly us!

GSK Science in the Summer programs are completely free to participants! Students must be entering grades 2-6 to participate. For more information, call Jillian Wyckoff at 203-372-3521 x127 or email at

Please arrive no later than 10:20 so we can begin on time. Students are encouraged to bring lunch and a snack, and should be prepared to get messy and go outside. Please note that the Discovery Museum will not provide lunch or snacks.
