Cambridge Science Festival, founded in 2007, is an initiative of MIT and the MIT Museum. In light of Covid-19 (the coronavirus disease) and the clear policies issued by MIT concerning events and best practices for public health, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Festival, originally scheduled to take place April 17-26, 2020. We share MIT’s desire to protect the health and safety of everyone in our community — the public, our many collaborators, event hosts and presenters, our vendors, and our team.
We recognize this decision is disappointing to visitors and to our event hosts and participants. While we look forward to exploring creative ways to make science accessible, engaging and fun to everyone in the absence of the traditional Festival, we can’t wait to welcome all of you to the next Cambridge Science Festival in April of 2021.
