Museum Shows

The Franklin Institute, named in honor of Benjamin Franklin, is a nationally renowned science museum located in downtown Philadelphia. Students, faculty, and staff in the MRSEC have been working with the staff of The Franklin Institute to design innovative new educational resources for science museums nationwide. Working together for almost 20 years, the MRSEC and the Franklin Institute have produced six cart-based, interactive demonstration kits that have each been distributed to museums.  Information about all kits is located on the Penn State MRSEC website.  The most recent kit containing hands-on, DIY-at-home activities is available via an online platform called Mission: Materials Science.
