This April marks the 10th anniversary of the annual Cambridge Science Festival, and they’re pulling out all the stops.
With a seriously stacked schedule of events, (including one of our own) and major sponsorships from Google, MIT, Biogen, and the City of Cambridge, this year is shaping up to be their biggest event yet.
Over the course of the 10-day celebration, held this April 15-24, the Cambridge Science Festival take science, technology, engineering, art, and math curiosities to a new level.
Every spring, they strive to make science accessible, engaging, and most of all – fun.
Take our free Wednesday Make & Mix workshop for example. From 2:00-3:30pm on the 20th, we’re opening our studio doors to the public for an opportunity to check out the latest in music technology and to feel what it’s like to be a DJ! Attendees can try their hand at manipulating music with Ableton Live, and creating their own performance with hands-on Akai hardware.
Music tech aside, the Cambridge Science Festival has a ton of different events, workshops, tours, and hands-on activities for every age.
You can check out Saturday’s MIT Open House from 10:00am-3:00pm on the 23rd for hands-on science, art, technology, and culture-based activities, as well as an inside look at one of the city’s top universities.
For some Friday night entertainment, you can head to Harvard Square on the 15th for some Sidewalk Astronomy, to view the Moon, Jupiter, double stars, and star clusters.
Or, kick back on Sunday the 17th, for an Art + Science of Beer event at Mystic Brewery. Take a tour, learn how the brews are made, and taste some samples for an afternoon of local beer and fun.
From mixing music, to beginner’s coding, to bioengineering your own living organisms, the Cambridge Science Festival brings something to the table for everyone.
And kids love our lab:
