Science in the Summer is a free program developed by the Franklin Institute and funded by GlaxoSmithKline to teach kids in grades K-5th about science. Since 2015, Science Central has brought hands-on science education to the Allen County community through this program.

This year's topic covers the Science of Me! Kids will explore both the biological systems that make humans fundamentally alike, and the elements that interact to create a unique individual!
