British International School of Boston Pavilion

At the British International School of Boston Pavillion, we are going to encourage young people to look at the energy of the future through a series of challenges and activities. We hope these fun hands-on challenges will get you thinking about energy in the future, and give you a taste of STEM education at BISB

Electricity of the future

We hope to give you a glimpse of Science at BISB with our MIT-inspired wind turbine challenge. Following the flow of the famous MIT product engineering course, 2.009, we hope you will Ideate, Model, Test your way through this challenge. We want you to plan, build and experiment with your own wind turbine designs to help design wind turbines of the future.

The lighting of the future

Modern LED lighting is massively reducing the amount of energy wasted in homes and businesses. LED lights can use up to 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs For this activity, you will learn about circuits and LED technology in order to build your own flashlight.

Transport of the Future

In this challenge, students will try to create the fastest balloon car. Car designs have improved over the years, modern cars are more efficient and more comfortable than cars of 100 years ago. In this challenge students will build a model balloon car and test it on our race track to see if they can get the winning prize.

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.

The Cambridge Science Festival was founded by and is produced by the MIT Museum.
