About the 2021 Festival

Well, this year has been.... different! But there is so much to celebrate in our local STEAM community - we can't wait to highlight the amazing science all around us this April!

The 2021 Cambridge Science Festival will culminate in a month-long digital showcase of all the cool STEAM activities you have to offer. Our curious community wants to connect with you to explore everything from math & origami, to innovative medicines, home cocktail science, the deep ocean to exoplanet hunting & everything in between.

Looking to get the community involved in an interactive project, game, or citizen science activity? Let's do it! Have another idea? We're game!

We will share your creative video and audio productions, art productions, food explorations, and written reflections broadly online, in social media, and public digital formats, as well as direct outreach to students and families.

Connect with us to get started. See below!

Helpful hints

Keep it fun!
We're looking for entries that can make complex STEAM concepts simple and appeal to a wide audience

Encourage the audience to be hands-on!
Supply a recipe, toolkit, interactive website, printable or any physical items so festival attendees can participate with you, even during social distancing.

Everyone welcome! This means you!
This year's festival makes it easier than ever for everyone to participate. Feel free to share your poems, recorded works, and more with our audience. Did you leverage science to craft an amazing home cocktail recipe? Want to create a soundscape of migrating birds? Ready to make a stop motion animation of native species? Show us what you've got!

We're here to help!
The CSF team is here to help if you aren't sure if your idea will work or just want a partner to brainstorm with. Just reach out to us and we'll be in touch soon to set up a call or video meeting!

We are particularly interested in fun science from the past year!
How have you explored your curiosity and experience science in the past year? Please share your journey or ideas with us! Think of this as an opportunity to make a time capsule of this very unique year and how you embraced or explored science in your everyday life.
