Philadelphia Science Festival

Philadelphia Science Festival LogoPenn Medicine will play a starring role in the  Philadelphia Science Festival again this year. The Festival is a citywide collaboration showcasing science and technology every April. This year it runs from April 19 - 28, 10 days to celebrate the region’s strengths in science and technology, bringing together more than 100 partners from academia to museums to restaurants. The Festival will include an extensive line-up of programs and exhibitions designed to inspire the next generation of scientists and spark discussion among young and old. 

In particular, check out Penn’s signature event, “Big Ideas: Funding and Innovation,” which will feature researchers who’ve generated some of the most well-known scientific breakthroughs of our time and the role that federal funds continue to play in furthering innovation. To reserve your ticket, go to http://www.philasciencefestival.org/event/62-big-ideas-funding-and-innovation and enter 'pennmed' under the discount code for a $10 ticket.
