GSK SCIENCE IN THE SUMMER

Join The Bakken Museum for this year’s exciting GSK: Science in the Summer™ workshops on The Science of Me! Participants are invited to discover how the body’s systems work together and explore what makes humans alike and what makes us individuals. In this multi-day program, we will discover how our heart, brain, and DNA make us who we are and help us do what we do.

This is a free, two-part program for students entering grades 2-5 next fall. To participate, please register with one of the sites below. Funding for this program is provided by GSK and the Franklin Institute.
