GSK is committed to empowering the next generation of innovators to change the world for the better. The company does this by helping young people develop their STEM skills.

By exploring practical, everyday uses of STEM, GSK can encourage young people, particularly girls, to explore careers in the industry.

For example, GSK STEM Education is supporting teachers and parents to help bring STEM to life whilst students continue to learn at home. These resources form part of GSK's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inspiring the next generation of STEM innovators

GSK's STEM at home series includes new fun and free practical experiments for parents and students to do together. They can be completed at home or in school, encouraging students to become lab scientists for the day.

GSK students

Through these experiments, students can discover chromatography and try the process used in labs to check if a medicine contains the right chemicals; understand electrolysis through building a circuit with simple materials and make sodium hydroxide; one of the most used ingredients in making medicines; and measure their lung capacity and compare it with someone else’s in their household.

There are a range of topics to discover, such as understanding how we breathehow an arm works and exploring data science

GSK's resources include independent student sheets and engaging hands-on activities that require little equipment and can be easily completed from home. 

Part of a global effort to tackle COVID-19

GSK continues to support global efforts to tackle COVID-19. The company has been actively exploring ways to help, with its science and expertise, alongside protecting the health and wellbeing of its people and managing its global supply chains to support patients and consumers who depend on its products.
