One more event for this weekend is the Philadelphia Science Festival! I’ll be working a table with PW at the outdoors Science Carnival on the Ben Franklin Parkway from 10am-5pm. Here’s the description from the website: “You’ve never experienced an outdoor carnival like this one! The event features more than 80 exhibitors offering non-stop family-friendly experiments, interactive activities, games, and a packed line-up of live entertainment. Enjoy liquid nitrogen ice cream, make gak, meet live zoo animals, check out the inner-workings of robots, take a tour of a helicopter, extract DNA from a strawberry, test a “crime scene” for forensic evidence, and so much more! Be sure to visit the Philadelphia Book Festival’s Street Fair, held in conjunction the Science Carnival and just a few steps away!”
Bring out our inner Bill Nye this Saturday! For more information, click here for the website. The Philadelphia Science Festival is a 2-week festival with over 120 events for the public to become more informed about science, engineering and technology. Definitely something to keep an eye out for in upcoming years as well!
