Science Is Everywhere - and every Thursday on Kids Corner, we explore the science within, around and above - on SCIENCE THURSDAY!

The first Thursday of each month our sky guy Derrick Pitts, chief astronomer of the Franklin Institute Science Center joins us to help us better understand the mysteries of Deep Space. On the second Thursday of each month Dr. Lisa Chirlian shares another experiment as we dive into some Kitchen Chemistry. On the third Thursday of each month, it's a visit from our All-Natural Science Guy Mike Weilbacher, executive director of the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. Together we explore Green Acres; the wide and wonderful world of natural science all around us! Finally, on the final Thursday it's YOUR turn as Kathy asks kids to call and teach her something they've learned in their science class studies! 

It's all about science - every Thursday on Kids Corner!
