About the Cambridge Science Festival
For 10 days in April, the festival showcases innovation, ingenuity, and fun in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
Held annually since 2007 and modeled after music, art, and film festivals, the Cambridge Science Festival motivates curiosity through accessible, interactive activities for children, the science community, and the general public.
Cambridge Science Festival Partners
The festival collaborates with several educational and public organizations throughout Cambridge, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University, the City of Cambridge, the Cambridge Public School System, the Cambridge Public Library, WGBH Radio, and the Boston Museum of Science, to reach out to students and members of the educational community.
Festival organizers offer many activities and events throughout the year leading up to the April extravaganza as a part of the “Science on the Street” program.
Taking place across Massachusetts, “Science on the Street” brings STEM-focused information and activities to the people of the state through fun, engaging multicultural events and festivals.
At its heart, the Cambridge Science Festival brings people together: parents, students, educators, researchers, and scientists. Together, they share their interests in science and imagination in a fun, active environment.
The festival offers vital opportunities for children and students of all ages to get involved with Curiosity Challenges and Ideas Challenges.
