Fun with Micropipettes!

Recreate famous experiments at home using micropipettes! Micropipettes are a commonly used tool in biotech labs, and in this event, you’ll get to use them, too. Come join us regardless of prior experience.

Join us in Fun with Micropipettes to engage in popular science experiments, such as making elephant toothpaste! In this event, we’ll be using micropipettes—a common tool found in any biotech lab—and simple everyday ingredients to put ourselves in the shoes of scientists for a day. This event is open to anyone of any age and experience level, so come join us in this fun activity!

Fun with Micropipettes is hosted by Biotech & Global Health Outreach (BGHO), a student-run non-profit that strives to make STEM freely accessible to all students. We know that in this day and age, inequity in education still remains an issue. Because of the lack of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) opportunities for young people, especially people of color and women, it’s not always easy for students to explore their passions and reach their full potential. So, in June of 2020, four students from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School teamed up to create BGHO. With the help of so many people, we have since grown into the student-run, international non-profit that we are today. BGHO’s mission has and will always remain the same: to make STEM opportunities freely accessible to students.

At BGHO, we work every day toward breaking barriers in the STEM field by providing free, engaging STEM opportunities for young, future scientists. These opportunities include research, educational videos, infographics, guest speaker talks, and tutoring—all for no cost. With our dedication to supporting our communities and beyond, coupled with our own passion for STEM, we try to touch as many lives as possible.

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.
