The university invited more than 100 Philadelphia school children to attend the celebration. Attendees from Central High School, New Foundations High School, and more gathered at Temple’s Science and Research Center to witness Doctor Phillips demonstrate various science experiments. The Wilkes Barre native used dry ice, liquid nitrogen, and packaging peanuts to create interactive demonstrations that showcased Einstein’s scientific concepts.
