Come join the festivities as the Franklin Institute presents the kickoff event for the Philadelphia Science Festival! The Philly Science Spotlight is the commencement event of this special celebration that presents hands-on events for kids, sophisticated activities for adults, and tons of science-focused fun.
The Philly Science Spotlight invites you to meet a diverse array of scientific researchers who are breaking ground in their fields and unlocking the mysteries of the world all around you! Join in the fun at the Franklin Institute for a series of flash talks hosted by The Franklin Institute’s Chief Bioscientist, Dr. Jayatri Das, featuring several of the area’s leading researchers and learn about the cutting-edge discoveries that are happening in the City of Brotherly Love.
This amazing talk is the perfect way to start off the week-long Philadelphia Science Festival, which serves to educate, inspire, and engage the region with the science and technology that surrounds our everyday world. Organized and led by The Franklin Institute, in collaboration with 200 of the region’s premier science, cultural, and educational establishments, the 2018 Philadelphia Science Festival offers more than 80 events over nine days in communities all across the region. Be sure to attend this kickoff event and take part in the multitude of activities!
At U City Flats, the premier apartments in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
