The best science in Media

For science fans near Philadelphia, here are photographs from a recent visit to the Delaware County Institute of Science, based in Media, Pennsylvania.  First my favorite (a grumpy dried frog), then small thumbnails of the rest. Mouse-over a photo to see a brief description of what it is (but try to guess, first), or click it to launch larger version with titles. If you want to see any of the photographs even larger, or want to read the gruesome details, visit my original gallery.

If you are in Media to eat (and you should … see http://www.mediarestaurants.com for listing) or in court because you’re a bad person and got caught (it’s the County seat), you can visit DCIS on a Monday, Thursday, or Saturday morning (9am – 12pm). They also feature monthly talks: the next one is November 9th and focuses on the Mason-Dixon line (oh, yes, there’s a story there).
