Philadelphia Science Festival heads to Chestnut Hill for Discovery Day

For the first year ever J.S. Jenks Academy for the Arts and Sciences hosted the Philadelphia Science Festival with a day full of science-themed activities and games.

The festival featured hands-on science experiments and demonstrations encouraging guests of all ages to participate and explore the science behind everyday objects and actions.

J.S. Jenks also hosted a Funfest on site with bounces, inflatables, face-painting and more.
