Where to Park for the Philadelphia Science Festival


Put your thinking caps on: On April 21, the Philadelphia Science Festival returns for its 7th year! Organized by the Franklin Institute, the nine-day, citywide festival aims to celebrate and build a community around science, engineering and technology to perhaps inspire the next Einstein.

Through April 29, the festival will boast more than 80 events ranging from family outings to workshops for all ages scattered throughout Philly. Get a sneak peak of the festival in the promo reel below:
