Celebrate Chemistry Week!

All guests enjoy half off Harsco Science Center admission on 10/28!

October 28, 2017

To celebrate National Chemistry Week, Whitaker Center is granting all Harsco Science Center visitors 50% off admission on Saturday, October 28!

Guests will  delve into the world of chemistry by visiting interactive stations throughout the science center from 11:00am to 3:00pm. All activities take place inside Harsco Science Center and are included with admission, which is half price thanks to the Southeast PA Section of the American Chemical Society.

The mission of National Chemistry Week is to reach the public, particularly elementary and secondary school children, with positive messages about chemistry to:

  • Make a positive change in the public's impression of chemistry;
  • Promote a mechanism for effectively mobilizing ACS local sections; and
  • Motivate the ACS membership through local section activities.

For more about National Chemistry Week and other resources go to the American Chemical Society website at

This program is sponsored by the Southeast PA Section of the American Chemical Society.
