Weekend Planner: February 21, 2020

Family-fun events and activities in Philadelphia, the suburbs, South Jersey and Delaware for February 21-23, 2020

Top Picks for This Weekend

The Franklin Institute's Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day Saturday engages girls in all aspects of manufacturing & design and aims to inspire them to consider careers in the field. They’ll get hands-on during activities that explore mechanical, electrical and chemical engineering, as well as chat with women engineers about their work and life in the industry. 

Dig into the weird, wild world of fandom Sunday during South Jersey Nerd Fest at the Holiday Inn in Swedesboro. The collectibles festival features vendors, appearances by artists & writers, cosplay groups, celeb sightings and a costume contest. 

Few toppings are as timeless and tasty as maple syrup! See how the sweet stuff’s made during two events Sunday. Churchville Nature Center's Maple Sugar Day and Pancake Breakfast demonstrates how trees are tapped, sap is collected and syrup is produced. And during the FREE Sugar Maple Trees Program at East Norriton’s Norristown Farm Park, you’ll find out how to identify the tree, then taste-test pure maple syrup against commercial varieties.
