Join the Franklin Institute as they continue to celebrate the opening of their "Your Brain" exhibit at the new Karabots Pavilion! 

From the cerebellum to the frontal lobe and beyond, uncover the mysteries of that three pound gray wonder----your brain! 

Meet local researchers as they show you the neuroscience mysteries they are uncovering right here in Philadelphia. Take a look at your own brainwaves, see if you can be tricked into thinking you have a new hand, observe actual brain tissue, and so much more!

Take the Science After Hours BRAINY challenge: Pick-up a game card and visit activity stations designed to illustrate different regions of your brain. Collect enough stickers and win a special prize!

Tickets will be $17 but if you use the FunSavers link below, its $10.50 with fees. If you are a Franklin Inst member, it's 10, but you need to call[masked] for ticketing.

FunSavers Link for $10.50

Franklin Ticket link for $17

Must be 21+. There will be a drinks/snacks bar with items available for purchase,

Will stand near the giant Ben Franklin statute between 6:15 and until they start letting people in. Will have meetup sign and will post particulars for find us closer to the date.

It is a huge place, so going to be difficult finding people unless we meet first and sync up in the main hall.

    Apologize for getting there a bit late but glad I caught up with the group next to the Franklin statue. The two brainiacs from FI were keeping the group mesmerized with the spinning disk. Interesting activity tables throughout. Was fun.

    I think I was waiting for you people in the wrong place that's why I could not find you. I was at the box office not in front of the exhibit.. I did not know where the exhibit was until 7pm

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
