College of Science & Mathematics

Philadelphia Science Festival

As the weather warms and students and faculty take to the outdoors after a chilly winter, so too will the College of Science and Mathematics be making its way outside.

In an inaugural appearance, CSM will be included in this year's Philadelphia Science Festival.

The festival is a 10-day, community wide celebration of science, including presentations, hands-on activities and informal educational experience for all ages.

The College will co-represent Rowan University with the College of Engineering and the College of Education, partaking in three events including: Science Carnival After Dark, Astronomy Night and Science Carnival on the Parkway.

Stop by the Franklin Institute on April 25, for Science After Dark, an adult program with hands on activities and refreshments. The Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University will also be holding Astronomy Night, hosted by Keith Johnson and Lloyd Black. Programs will be running all day beginning at 3 pm with Solar Observing, The Night Sky and Observing through Telescopes.          

May 3 will be Science on the Parkway, a free all-day event with over 150 exhibitors hosting, family-friendly games and activities and live entertainment.  Make sure to stop by the CSM, the College of Education and College of Engineering's booth where several computer science students will hold demonstrations.
