Get Nerdy with the Free Library of Philadelphia and the 2015 Philadelphia Science Festival!

By Rachel F. RSS Tue, April 21, 2015

The Free Library of Philadelphia is excited to be a core collaborator in the 2015 Philadelphia Science Festival, an innovative, nine-day celebration that explores the many ways that science and technology touch our everyday lives. A citywide collaboration that runs April 24-May 2, the Festival unites 210 of the region’s most influential institutions, museums, and cultural centers in a common goal. We hope you will join us for one of our 18 Neighborhood Science After School events and explore the other 100+ events available throughout the Festival. Presented by The Dow Chemical Company and organized by The Franklin Institute, the Festival brings science to restaurants, parks, breweries, libraries, museums, and other neighborhood places!

What better way to celebrate science than in your own backyard? Join the Philadelphia Science Festival at several of our neighborhood libraries during after school hours for a celebration of science exploration! Scientists, engineers, and other experts will share their knowledge to provide FUN and FREE programs, including interactive activities, family-friendly experiments, and hands-on demonstrations, for all to enjoy! Neighborhood libraries hosting Neighborhood Science After School include Bushrod Library, Bustleton Library, Cecil B. Moore Library, Chestnut Hill Library, Greater Olney Library, Haddington Library, Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional Library, Kingsessing Library, Lawncrest Library, Oak Lane Library, Philadelphia City Institute, Ramonita de Rodriguez Library, Torresdale Library, Walnut Street West Library, West Oak Lane Library, Whitman Library and Wynnefield Library.

Plus, the Free Library’s Techmobile—a Hot Spot on wheels featuring computers, broadband, and one-on-one training—will appear at the Philadelphia Science Festival’s Science Carnival on the Parkway on Saturday, May 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.!
