2017 Cambridge Science Festival


Clear your schedule, gather your family and friends and join us for our signature 10-day Festival, packed with hands-on events that encourage curiosity and invite exploration. This year you’ll find a wide range of programming that will inspire kids and adults to celebrate science, dive deeper and—as always—be curious!

The Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a celebration showcasing fun and the leading edge in science, technology, engineering, art, and/or math in our region.  A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Cambridge Science Festival makes science accessible, interactive and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

The Cambridge Science Festival offers a wide range of STEAM-related activities – lectures, debates, exhibitions, concerts, plays, workshops, etc. – over ten days at a variety of locations. Modeled on art, music, and movie festivals, the Cambridge Science Festival makes STEAM part of the wider culture by illuminating the richness of scientific inquiry and the excitement of discovery.

The Festival’s collaborators – The MIT Museum, Harvard University, the City of Cambridge, Cambridge Public Schools, Cambridge Public Library, and the Museum of Science – reach out to K-12 students, the general public, and the science community, to excite and ignite curiosity.
