Sniffing out Safety

This special Cambridge Science Festival video features members of the Cambridge Police Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit (Bomb Squad), including K9s Dixie, Kevin, Rumba Tango, and Zambra. The dogs and the CPD Bomb Technicians will take viewers through various mock exercises, including how K9s search for explosives and firearms, how the CPD’s Bomb Technicians handle and make explosive items safe, and the types of equipment they use when responding to suspicious items.

    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.
