Let the games begin! Join us for a special PSF Science on Tap Untapped with weird and wonderful games that are chock-full of science fun.

Whether you’re rolling dice to build your settlement, working with a team to treat an outbreak of infections, or telling fortunes from a strange 17th-century astrology chart, you’ll enjoy a selection of games from all six Science on Tap organizations.

Get the cheat codes to the science and history of gaming with entertaining flash talks, and drink a toast to destroying your friends in a (friendly) competition. Drinks and tasty snacks provided.

Science on Tap is sponsored by a consortium of six Philadelphia institutions: the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, American Philosophical Society (APS) Museum, Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, Penn Museum, Science History Institute, and Wagner Free Institute of Science.

The Philadelphia Science Festival is a communitywide 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.

Registration is required for this event. Tickets are $10 per person. You must be 21 and over to attend.
