Grid: Award-Winning Exhibit Explores Water Analysis and Protection

Institute’s ‘Downstream’ exhibition featured in local sustainable lifestyle magazine.

Downstream, the Science History Institute’s current exhibition that explores 200 years of water analysis and protection, is featured in Grid, Greater Philadelphia’s only free sustainable monthly lifestyle magazine.

“Water quality has been a hot topic in Philadelphia from the beginning. Early promotional materials for William Penn’s new city hyped the many streams that would carry away waste, and in the 1730s the likes of Benjamin Franklin tried to regulate industry to clean up the horribly polluted Dock Creek.”
