Wide World of Wizardry Potion-Off 2017 (Live Show)

Join us for Potion-Off 2017 as returning champ Severed Snipe takes on a newcomer from The Franklin Institute. Spells will be chosen at random as magic tries to tackle science. Whose «magic» will reign supreme?

OOLALA in the Fels Planetarium

Playing the Yule Ball are local cinematic space rockers OOLALA. They may not be the Weird Sisters, but even muggles will find magic in OOLALA's hook-laden funk-rock jams laced with psychedelic, glitter rock and heavy soul. Under the starry skies of the Fels Planetarium, OOLALA will seek answers to the cosmological mysteries that lie beyond our grasp through the power of rock and roll.

“Wizard School” is one of eleven amazing 21+ Science After Hours events at The Franklin Institute in 2017.

Other highlights on the calendar include a spirited Halloween party on October 31 and Philly's most Scientific Ugly Sweater Party on December 21.
