Science abounds in Hunting Park! On April 25, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, join students, community leaders, local businesses, and neighborhood residents in the park for an array of fun hands-on science activities that range from building a rocket to designing a bridge and the science of paint.

Discovery Day in Hunting Park is part of the Philadelphia Science Festival. A series of events taking place at area parks, farms and nature centers, the Philadelphia Science Festival allows Philadelphia residents to explore the science that exists right in their own back yards. This is done through engaging, hands-on science activities and demonstrations for families.

In Hunting Park, students, businesses and community residents are joining together with the Hunting Park Community Science Network (a collaboration between The Franklin Institute and twelve different community based organizations in the neighborhood) to show that science is everywhere–from the food we eat to the ground beneath our feet!

The Hunting Park Community Science Network is a collaboration of APM, ASPIRA, Inc., Ayuda Community Center, Edison High School, Esperanza, Inc., Esperanza College, Historic Fair Hill, Hunting Park United, the Lenfest Center, The Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia Center for Arts and Technology, and Zion Baptist Church.
