Fragile Menagerie

Extinction and Endangerment Art and ecology for all age and learning levels! From the Pleistocene Era when early humans apparently battled saber-toothed tigers and plunged woolly mammoths over Siberian cliffs for easy slaughter, extinction continues today, exacerbated by climate change. We explore creatures which became extinct, discussing how and why that happened, and also the escalating concerns that endanger others among Earth’s fauna.

    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.
