HOW MUCH fun is in store at the Philadelphia Science Festival? Lots, suggests the just-announced kick-off event - a Drexel University-steered project to create the ultimate, Guinness World Record Rube Goldberg Machine.
Uh, what's that?
Think mind-boggling thingamajig made with chutes and ladders, pipes and pulleys, fog-blowing this and generator-powered that, to be spread all over the floor of the 33rd Street Armory, in University City.
Happening April 25 through May 3, this fourth science fest is all about "inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers," shared Franklin Institute president and CEO Dennis Wint at yesterday's event.
