Experience Science in the Garden at the Franklin Institute

Every other Wednesday is Science in the Garden with The Franklin Institute. Join in this free event at the PHS Pops Up Garden (20th and Market streets) from 12:15 – 1:30 pm for interactive kid-friendly presentations. Highlights include “What Makes a Plant a Plant?”—which discusses flowers, seeds, and fruits—and a fungus-focused discussion called “A Different FBI.”

The next one is Wednesday July 13th and running every other Wednesday through October 19th from 12:15 pm to 1:30 pm.

As if Science in the Garden weren’t engaging enough, The Franklin Institute is sweetening the deal by offering the Garden Passport. Children 12 years old and younger are invited to print out the passport (see below) and bring it with them to the garden. If they attend five or more presentations (and have their passport stamped by the instructor), they will earn a free general admission ticket to The Franklin Institute.

Science in the Garden runs until October 19, but don’t delay. The little ones in your life will love learning and growing in the PHS Pops Up Garden!
