Delaware River Festival 2023
The Science History Institute joins the Delaware River Festival for its 5th annual celebration of the mighty Delaware.
This annual event brings people together for a day of family-friendly fun, educational activities, and water-centered learning to the Camden and Philadelphia waterfronts. The Delaware River Festival offers something for the whole family: free ferry rides, museum visits, pedal boats, face painting, a scavenger hunt, crafts, and so much more!
Learn about the history of synthetic dyes and their impact on our environment with Science History Institute staff. View images from our upcoming exhibit BOLD: Color from Test Tube to Textile and make your own River Hero Badge with fabric and paint!
This event is free and open to the public, and no tickets are required.
Join us in our museum EVERY SATURDAY for a family-friendly program that highlights strange and surprising stories from the history of science!
Historians and social scientists of science, technology, and medicine discuss their collaborative work to develop and deploy “embedded connections” in the humanities and STEM fields.
In this course Roger Turner will show how the Nobel Prize can be an entry point for more inclusive stories about the people who work in science.
