Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Philadelphia Science Festival

Philadelphia Science Festival

The Science of Glassblowing, one of the hundreds of (mostly free) activities during the Philadelphia Science Festival, examines the forces behind the beautiful craft. With hands-on fun for kids, sophisticated events for adults and a carnival along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the two-week, citywide Philadelphia Science Festival takes science out of the lab and demonstrates the role it plays in everydaylife.
