Smithsonian Science Summer School (S4)

In a proactive response to reversing “summer slide”1  2—a decline in skills that students learn during the school year—the Smithsonian Science Education Center, in collaboration with Horizons Greater Washington, launched the Smithsonian Science Summer School (S4) in 2018. Horizons Greater Washington empowers economically disadvantaged students to reach their full potential and serves local Title 1 youth at three different campuses in the DC area.
