Have you heard about the Philadelphia Science Festival? It's a nine-day celebration of science featuring lectures, debates, hands-on activities, special exhibitions and a variety of other informal science education experiences for Philadelphians of all ages.
This weekend, on May 3rd, 2014, the festival’s signature event, the Science Carnival, will feature a very special guest. It's a bird... It's a plane... No, it's Super Grover!!!
Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind Sesame Street, will be at the Carnival to showcase Little Discoverers: Big Fun with Science, Math and More. The initiative focuses on the importance of teaching young children the principles of science, technology, engineering and math (aka STEM), and (stationary) Super Grover will be on hand for photo ops.
