The Free Library is excited to host several science-based children’s programs in 17 of our neighborhood libraries—as well as a special “Science Tellers” program at the Parkway Central Library— in conjunction with the Philadelphia Science Festival in April and May.
On Sunday, April 27 at the Parkway Central Library, the Picarillo ScienceTellers will present their interactive “Science Tellers” program that invites children and their families to discover science in their world. After the performance, audience members are invited to participate in more hands-on science activities presented by LEAP into Science, a program developed in partnership with The Franklin Institute. “Science Tellers” is part of the Sundays on Stage series of programs generously supported by the Philadelphia City Institute Board of Managers.
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 3rd from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.!
