First Friday: Selling Science

May 6, 2016
5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Science History Institute, 315 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia

Advertising is used to sell all sorts of things, but what does it look like when the product is science? Join us as we take a journey along the timeline of science advertising. Relive the golden days of Mad Men with vintage print ads for things like Saran Wrap and plastic. Watch technology and culture change as you view ads from the various decades straight from our archives. Create your own ad posters and radio jingles, and learn why selling scientific innovation is not quite as easy as it seems.

The Museum at the Science History Institute will be open for self-guided tours throughout the evening.

Free and open to the public.
