About the Festival:
The Cambridge Science Festival is the first multi-day celebration of science and technology in the United States. During nine days in April, the City of Cambridge showcases hundreds of open events designed to excite, engage and educate the public. We take curiosity to a new level!
History of the Festival:
The first Cambridge Science Festival was held in April 2007, and opened at Cambridge City Hall. It now holds its kick-off event on the grounds of the Cambridge Public Library.
The 2011 Festival coincided with MIT's 150th Anniversary celebration and a campus-wide Open House. This year, in 2014, the Festival coincides with the Massachusetts public school vacation week.
