What the heck is a science festival, anyway?
Science festivals are public celebrations that offer a wide range of science, technology, engineering, art and math-related activities – creative exhibitions, demonstrations, performances, tours, debates, workshops, concerts – over a period of several days, in a variety of locations.
Is the Cambridge Science Festival for adults? Kids and families?
It’s for everyone! There are some programs specifically for adults or 21+, others are for kids and families.
When will it be held this year?
Join us LIVE and IN-PERSON this Fall 2022 Oct 3-9 in the Festival Zone at Kendall/MIT Open Space.
Is it free or do I have to pay?
All events in the Festival Zone (Kendall/MIT Open Space) are free and open to the public. Events at other locations may have a fee. Please check our Program Guide for details.
So what would I actually do at this festival?
Well, at different events you’ll do different things. At some events, like plays and concerts, you’ll sit, watch, and be entertained. But at most events you’ll be participating, creating, and interacting. This is not show and tell… it’s show and do!
