Uncover the Past,
Discover the Future
Friday, September 20, 2013, 5–9 pm
Every year, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University treats its members to a special evening during which they can meet our staff, see our collections, and experience the breadth and depth of work that takes place behind the scenes at the museum.
This year, at the bicentennial edition of Members’ Night, we will showcase the Academy’s rich history of scientific discovery and our scientists’ current work around the world, launching the Academy into its third century. As you find out what goes on behind the scenes, you will experience 200 years of Academy history—all in one night!
Take a look at last year’s Members’ Night Guide for the types of activities and behind-the-scenes access that is only available to members! Download the Members' Night Guide.
Meet the Scientists
Talk with an environmental scientist studying wetlands, a botanist studying flowers, a paleontologist studying fossils, or any one of a number of Academy scientists. You’ll be visiting them in the labs and offices in which they work.
Explore the Collections
The Academy holds nearly 18 million biological specimens. You can’t possibly see them all in one night, but you’ll be able to view many of our coolest creatures, including insects, birds, fishes, mollusks, lizards, plants, fossils, and more. Most of these are never seen by the public!
