Participants from our very own Discovery, STEM Gems, Rising STARS, BOLD Futures, and EcoGirls explored the Franklin Institute's exhibits focused on the brain, heart, electricity, sports, and more! Some of the participants even got to make their film debut as they played students in the Franklin Institute's GSK Science in the Summer educator training videos.
