Information for Educators


The Philadelphia Science Festival is all about bringing people together! Over the years, we've worked with the leading scientific and educational institutions in the city, and now we want to introduce STEM-curious eighth through twelfth-grade students to all that our partners have to offer. Through a series of flash talks by fascinating, witty STEM professionals about their sometimes strange, sometimes surreal scientific work, the STEM Career Showcase is the perfect way to begin exploring the wide world of STEM careers and learn about the many free camps, after-school programs, and internships available to our city's most curious students. From 6:00 to 7:00 pm, parents are invited to learn from the experts about ways to support their STEM-interested students. 


This event is underwritten by Naval Supply Systems Command Weapon Systems Support and is hosted by the Independence Seaport Museum.
