Whitaker on Wheels


The Science Center takes the show on the road with our one-of-a-kind Whitaker On Wheels (WOW). A traveling troupe of professional actors brings all the fun and educational excitement of science theater straight to your school in our unmistakable WOW van. This outreach program offers large- and small-scale presentations that can serve as an exciting extension before or after your Whitaker Center visit, or as a great educational experience on its own. SDPC participants receive a 10% discount.


Aligned with Pennsylvania Academic Standards Whitaker on Wheels is designed to aid educators by means of dynamic, theatrical explorations of important scientific concepts. Educator Curriculum Guides, containing pre- and post-show classroom exercises, are provided free of charge upon request to prepare students for the performance and stimulate imagination and conversation around the topic.
