Joe on the Go!

March 9, 2012


Academy scientist Joseph Leidy was said to be the last man to know everything. Even when he was a boy, he was always trying to understand his world. Whether he was solving a murder by taking a close look at cell structure or piecing together fossil remains of an ancient beast based on a modern-day descendant, Joseph Leidy was always on the go!

In the spirit of Joseph Leidy, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University wants you to take one of natural history’s most important figures with you as you engage with the world of science! As you explore science around Philadelphia or travel around the world with your friends and family, bring young Joseph Leidy with you, take a picture with him, and share it with the Academy.

 Check out our Joe on the Go Family Guide for fun activities you and your family can do together that relate to the amazing work that Joseph Leidy did throughout his career. Let’s join in celebrating 200 years of discovery at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and take Joe on the Go!
