About Science of Space Program

I spoke with Marti Skold-Jordan, Manager, US Community Partnerships and asked why GSK developed a space-themed science program. Marti explained, “Scientists and astronomers have made extraordinary discoveries about the universe in recent years, making this an exciting time to introduce young people to worlds beyond ours. The Science of Space classes will make the connection between these discoveries and STEM concepts and skills in a way that children will remember for years to come, and that will help ignite their scientific curiosity for a lifetime.”
