It’s time to get nerdy, Philadelphia.

Entering its fifth year, the Philadelphia Science Festival is back, running Friday, April 24th and through May 2nd. Throughout the city there will be opportunities to explore the way things work and a chance to finally get some answers to the things you’ve always wondered about. Like, what makes us happy? And how can dinner come from weeds? It’s the perfect excuse to leave your glasses on, get out, discover something new and be amazed by the dynamic folks of Philadelphia studying what makes the world tick.

On Saturday, April 25th, join me to celebrate science at the first ever Chestnut Hill Discovery Day at John Story Jenks Academy of the Arts and Sciences. Learn all about the chemistry of bread making, how paint gets it’s color and see Empirical Point to learn all about “How to Know Where Those Pins Go?” I’ll be there from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., giving the inside scoop on how I know where to stick the tiny pins that make such a difference. I’ll share tips on how to find acupuncture points and teach people where to press to alleviate some of the most common problems like headaches and sinus pressure.

The event is free, no registration is required and a FunFest will be hosted on site with games, science themed activities and face painting, making for a great afternoon. Join me at John Story Jenks Academy of the Arts and Sciences, 8301 Germantown Ave, Saturday, April 24, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
