Penn Medicine at the 2014 Philadelphia Science Festival

Last year, volunteers from PPMC attended the Clark Park Science Day to teach local residents the importance of CRP training with hands-on instruction.

Penn Medicine will again play a starring role in the 4th annual Philadelphia Science Festival, a citywide collaboration showcasing science and technology every spring. The Festival runs from April 25 – May 3, 10 days devoted to celebrating the region’s strengths in science and technology, bringing together more than 100 partners from academia to museums to restaurants. It 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.
