The Philadelphia Science Festival offers over 100 events, each that present EMPs with great educational experiences and networking opportunities. We highly recommend getting to as many events as possible; you can expect to see several of us at events like the kick off party tonight or the Science of Sinners at the end of the Festival.
We would also like to highlight an event that may be of particular interest to those of you looking to work in collections or in any capacity in which one handles artifacts. On Wednesday, April 24th at 5:00 PM, make your way to the Penn Museum for Long Live Our Treasures: The Science of Conservation and Preservation.
