theCultFigure and I are going to Philly later this month, and we plan to check out some of the science museums while we’re there. As luck would have it, we might even get to celebrate the birthday of Gregor Mendel at the Academy of Natural Sciences while we’re in town!

Celebrate the birthday of Gregor Mendel, the father of modern genetics, born July 22, 1822. Interactive presentations will highlight genetic research conducted by scientists at the Academy.
