A Scranton Cultural Center Science’s Life in Space Event

Joseph Solfanelli is a respected Pennsylvania attorney who represents clients in complex transactional and business planning matters. Community involved, Joseph Solfanelli is an original incorporator and charter board member of the Scranton Cultural Center.

Housed in the historic and architecturally significant Masonic Temple, the Scranton Cultural Center has a mission of enriching the local community through performances and educational offerings. In addition to family-friendly musical productions such as The Little Mermaid, the center hosts the annual Franklin Institute Science Series.

This popular series was last held in May, with most presentations aimed at students in grades three through eight. Open to all ages, the Life in Space event was developed in partnership with NASA and enabled students to experience the actual arc of a space journey. Learning concepts such as orbit and action/reaction, students undertook “astronaut training” and confronted the actual challenges involved in living and working beyond the Earth. Other well-attended Science Series presentations included “Motion and Machines,” “Flight,” and “Scientific Method.”
