When my son was growing up, one of the places I never had the chance to take him was the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. He informed me that the school took them on several trips there. I was curious to find out about the Academy of Natural Sciences. My chance came when they had the exhibit on George Washington Carver, the Academy was asking for volunteers from different organizations in Philadelphia. As member of AAHGS~Family Quest Society a genealogy organization I volunteered. I was very impressed with the exhibit and the volunteers were allowed to explore all the exhibits in the museum. When the Carver exhibit ended I requested to remain. The Academy has a program for student call WINS, it is a great opportunity for student to find out about the science field and they get a stiphen for participating. I enjoy seeing the students come on the bus trips and finding out how interesting science can be, and, also I learn interesting information myself. The Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia contributes a great deal to educating the youths in Philadelphia in the field of science.
