Saturday, April 26, 10 am - 2 pm
Clark Park Science Discovery Day

Discover science in West Philadelphia, at this nine acre community park bordered by 43rd and 45th Streets, Baltimore and Woodland Avenues. Meet local scientists and STEM students and experience the beauty and wonder of this historic city park in a new way.

Tying in with the Museum's new exhibition, Native American Voices: The People—Here and Now, Penn Museum offers an interactive station that explores the question "How Was Early Native American Technology Manufactured?" Witness a flint knapping demonstration and learn how early stone tools were and are made. Think like an archaeologist as you categorize and sort arrowheads. Test your deduction skills when you examine Native American artifacts. Can you guess the function of the objects based on the clues?
