5:00 to 8:00 PM

at the Wagner Free Institute of Science

Honoring Dr. Stephen Tang

President and CEO of the University City Science Center

Mingle with fellow Wagner supporters, enjoy thought-provoking presentations, and sip specially-mixed cocktails as you revel in the haunting beauty of the museum after dusk.


Stephen Tang heads the nation’s oldest and largest urban research park. Located in West Philadelphia, the University City Science Center is an incubator for high-tech innovation, housing 100 companies working in STEM fields. Like the Wagner, the Science Center is committed to engaging kids in science. In 2015, it launched FirstHand, a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) initiative that uses the arts to engage students with math and science through school tours, workshops, mentorships, and a special lab space devoted to design and experimentation.


Sponsor this year's party, and you'll get the satisfaction of supporting free science education—as well as recognition at the event and in all promotional materials. We offer five levels of sponsorship.


Purchase tickets for you, for your friends, for your business associates. Bring the family, bring the babysitter, bring a date. We offer special rates for Wagner members and people under 30.


For questions, please contact Alison Hansen-Decelles at (215) 763-6529 x11 or email Alison Hansen-Decelles.

Proceeds will go directly towards programs and collection care so that the Wagner can continue to make science accessible to all.
