Our eyes are on the skies this summer thanks to GSK’s Science in the Summer. This program is a free summer resource made available to elementary school students each summer. Discovery Center was once again chosen as an organization to host these programs locally. The 2018 Science in the Summer theme is space and we could not be more excited about it! Hands-on exploration focuses on the sun, stars, space travel and more. One of the greatest details about this program is that it is conducted offsite. Don’t get us wrong–we love for families to visit us at the Discovery Center, but we know that with busy summer schedules it isn’t always possible. The nomadic nature of this program allows us to engage with students and families that wouldn’t typically have the opportunity to visit Discovery Center for such a program.
We have 12 confirmed locations for Science in the Summer and are still working on a few others. You’ll also notice that not all of these are located in Murfreesboro, we’re taking this show on the road to Bedford, Wilson, Cannon, and Grundy counties. Here are a few of the sites that will have programming open to the public:
- Shelbyville Library, June 21-22
- Tracy City & May Justus Libraries, June 29
- Mt. Juliet Library, July 16-17
- Palmer Library, July 24
- Altamont & Beersheba Libraries, July 25
