Thursday: Science + Climate
With unprecedented average temperatures and climate-related crises causing destruction across the globe, science must be our first line of defense. This day is dedicated to all things environmental, renewable and sustainable – the urgent ideas and technologies that will protect us in years to come.
Friday: Science + Food
Encounter gastronomic explorers from the furthest reaches of taste and tech, adventurers whose kitchens are laboratories, artists who cater on canvas and alchemists for whom gold is not a substance, but a flavor...this day is a place to try and to share, to experiment and explore, to learn the science behind food and meet the culinary architects designing tomorrow’s dishes.
Saturday: Science + Fashion
Boston Fashion Week presents a celebration of SMART fashion. Join us for a day of runway shows, exhibitions, discussion and interaction with designers, makers, engineers, brands, artisans, influencers and the public. Wearable tech to smart clothing, from future fabrics to the accessories you won’t be seen without – come experience the next generation of science in fashion.
Sunday: Science + Carnival
The final day of the festival is a full-on, family-friendly Great American Carnival – with Main Stage, Midway, Side Shows, Walk-abouts and more. Cambridge Science Festival’s most popular event features more than 80 individual partners, exhibitors, demonstrations, performances for an uproarious day of science- themed fun for the whole family. Don’t miss the Robot Petting Zoo, Physics- themed Circus Shows, Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Freeze-Off, and so much more.
