Dates

Registration will reopen in March 2019.

Registration Process

Registration is a two-step process. All steps must be completed for valid registration. Sessions that are not open will not appear.

1. Online Registration Form

Online registration is through Active Network. Only available sessions will appear on the registration webpage. Sessions that are not open or are filled will not appear.

  • Click “Register Now” button at the top of this page.
  • Complete online registration form
  • Receive a follow-up email from “GSK Science in the Summer” (~15 minutes after online form completion, check spam filter)

2. Participant Release Forms

Online participant release forms are completed through DocuSign. Digital signatures are legally binding. Forms must be complete and correct for valid registration.

  • You will receive a follow-up email from “GSK Science in the Summer” that includes the link to the participant release forms after the registration form is submitted.
  • Complete participant release forms within 72 hours of completing the registration information form. (Incomplete forms cancel online registration)
  • If your child is added to the waitlist, you will receive the release form once she or he is enrolled in a session.  You will have 72 hours from the email notification of enrollment to complete the release form.  Once a child is confirmed for a session, they will be removed from other session waitlists.

You will receive a confirmation email after all forms have been reviewed, up to 21 days after submission. Failure to complete forms will result in the cancelation of the registration. Staff cannot confirm registration by phone or email inquiry due to the high volume of registrations.
