Summer youth program follows the science (not that science)

Seats still available for “Science in the Summer,” registration continues through May

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department is partnering with GSK and the UNC Morehead Planetarium & Science Center to offer “Science in the Summer” for rising second through eighth graders. The free program will be offered at the Alston-Massenburg Center, 416 N. Taylor St.

The Level 1 session for rising second and third graders is full, but seats remain open for the Level 2 and 3 sessions which will be offered according to the following schedule:

There is no cost to participate, but registration is required. The online application is available on the Town website at http://bit.ly/WFScienceinSummer. Completed applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. Monday, May 31, and may be emailed to Recreation Specialist Garrett Bryant at gbryant@wakeforestnc.gov or delivered/mailed to the Alston-Massenburg Center, 416 N. Taylor St., Wake Forest, NC 27587.

The theme for the 2021 Science in the Summer series is “Be an Engineer.” Participating students will spend time exploring engineering through hands-on activities and experiments. Students will use their hands and minds to discover the world of engineering through investigations and design challenges. Through hands-on activities, they will follow the engineering design process as they design, build, test, and adapt projects to improve them using common materials.

GSK Science in the Summer™ program in North Carolina is a fun and free science education initiative that helps elementary and middle school children “grow into science.” Through classes held at public libraries and community-based centers in 10 North Carolina counties and taught by certified teachers, this program gets kids excited about studying science with hands-on experiments. For more information, contact Recreation Specialist Garrett Bryant at 919-554-6189 or gbryant@wakeforestnc.gov.
