Science CarnivalYou’ve never experienced an outdoor carnival like this one! The Carnival at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing features more than 175 exhibitors offering non-stop, family-friendly experiments, interactive activities, games, and a packed line-up of live entertainment. Enjoy making slime, meeting live zoo animals, checking out the inner-workings of robots, taking a tour of a helicopter, extracting DNA from a strawberry, testing a “crime scene” for forensic evidence, and so much more!

At the Spells booth, we’ll be helping young scientists answer the question “How does science make superheroes super?” Families will have the opportunity to test the science behind extraordinary powers such as Spider-Man’s sticky fingers and Magneto’s ability to control electromagnetic fields before inventing their own science-inspired heroes or villains and making a trading card!
