On April 22nd, 2018, the Penn Museum and the Middle East Center participated in the Philadelphia Science Festival, a larger event held by the city that runs from April 20th-April 28th, dedicated to teaching science and STEM skills to K-12 students in a fun, enjoyable way. Participants were able to explore the new Middle East Galleries and learn about how ancient cities were formed. Families tested their engineering skill with games that simulated building ancient structures.
