Matthew Lohr and Matthew Gratale from Arjun Yodh's group demonstrate soft matter properties at the Philadelphia Science Festival Kick-off Party at the Franklin Institute, April 25

Imagine a science wonderland filled with hands-on activities created just for adults. This kick-off event for the 2014 Festival included live science shows, music, demonstrations, and a variety of sensory stimulating stations-all tailored to grownups.

For the first time, the LRSM was invited to join and set up a demonstration booth called "The Surprising Behavior of Soft Materials." The night pulled in over 1000 attendees and was a great success. We look forward to our involvement next year.
