Behind the Scenes Video Tour: Broad Institute’s COVID-19 Testing Lab

Take a video tour of Broad Institute’s COVID-19 testing lab, where scientists have transformed a DNA sequencing lab built for scientific research into a medical testing lab that processes more than 100,000 COVID-19 tests per day. We have also included an educational guide with discussion questions and a learning activity with the video, for educators and classrooms (see below).

About the

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.
