Since its launch last Saturday on the Ben Franklin Parkway, the Philadelphia Science Festival has delighted thousands of science buffs with events across the city. The party continues in the coming week with dozens of events still to go, including two at CHF.

On Monday from 6 to 8 p.m., CHF will present Sam Kean's Science Caberet, an evening of science on stage. Sam Kean is the author of the New York Times best seller The Disappearing Spoon. (I was but one of hundreds of reviewers who loved the book.) A live audience will offer feedback and ultimately crown the best presenter.

On Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. CHF will host Manya—A Visit with Marie Curie portrayed by storyteller Susan Marie Frontczak. Best known for her discovery of radium and radioactivity, Curie was the first woman to receive a doctorate in the sciences in Europe, the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize, the first person to receive two Nobel Prizes, and the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne.

Registration is required for both events.  Monday's event is $15 and Wednesday's is $10. Hope to see you there.
