Frankford Hall - 1210 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125
Put your thinking caps on and join Nerd Nite for three talks with BRAIN-y experts, mind boggling tricks with The Franklin Institute's Brain Waves Street Team, and interactive games with local, innovative video game developer Cipher Prime! During this meeting of the minds, The Franklin Institute's Chief Bioscientist, Jayatri Das, will help us understand the reality of our perceptions----just in time for the grand opening of The Franklin Institute's newest exhibit, Your Brain, on June 14. Then, Ben Leach explains why some seemingly smarty-pants supervillains aren't as smart as they think. Then, from serial killers to blood-thirsty pirates, discover the stories behind some of Philadelphia's own Dr. Samuel George Morton's famous skulls with Brandon Zimmerman.
Show starts at 7:30PM but arrive early if you want a seat!
