About The Event:
Knit, crochet, or sew data visualization into your textile art, while hearing from researchers, who will share their experience creating physical, contextual, and interactive experiences around data that can help people understand and act on social challenges. Help sessions will get you started and keep you motivated as participants share their projects and strategies. Don’t know how to knit, crochet, or sew? That’s ok, we’ll get you started.

Join information visualization researcher and Northeastern University Professor Laura Perovich, who will share her research in data science to lead us in a brainstorming discussion, including an exploration of possible topics and specific tips and resources.

    About the
    Festival

    Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

    For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
