Discover science in your own backyard! Join Spells Writing Lab as we partner with local scientists and science students to uncover the wonders around Clark Park, from the physics of basketball to the creepy crawly creatures in the dirt. Keep an eye out for the Spells table, where we’ll use forensic science to solve the Great Cookie Caper, then write our own endings to the mystery!
Science comes to life in West Philadelphia with more than 20 interactive, hands on activities throughout the park from the neighborhood’s universities, research centers, and others. The Clark Park Science Discovery Day will be a signature program of the 2012 Philadelphia Science Festival, taking place on Sunday, April 29, 2012.
