A Summer-ful of Science

Just because school is out doesn’t mean that kids should stop learning.

Thanks to generous funders such as GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals and its Science in the Summer program, Morehead can fill that gap. Science in the Summer serves up science for free to 3,000 or so elementary school children in North Carolina communities.

Children explore science through themes such as, “The Science of Sports,” building models of equipment and examining topics such as nutrition and lung capacity. We hope to keep these young minds curious and nimble, while instilling in them a lifetime love of learning. Your support will enable us to reach out to even more students across the state, guiding them in the exploration of their worlds through the lens of STEM.
