Did you know that we’re less than a month away from the Cambridge Science Festival? Did you know that the Festival will run for nine full days, with events taking place all across the city? Did you know that in addition to a full slate of events in Cambridge, you can also find activities at the Arnold Arboretum, Belmont’s Beaverbrook Reservation, and the Franklin Park Zoo?
The sciences and the people who love them are part of what makes Cambridge great, and the scope of the Cambridge Science Festival is a testament to why our City has been at the forefront of so many discoveries. But the Festival won’t run itself, and its organizers need your help to make it the best it can be. You can volunteer in a wide variety of ways, including snapping photographs, blogging about the event, setting up exhibitions, spreading the word and more.
Can’t make it out to the Festival? That’s okay, because if you have empty two-liter soda bottles, you can still contribute to Space and Rockets Day on April 20. Just drop off your empties at the MIT Museum, and you’ll be helping folks build their own water-and-gas-powered rockets!
The Cambridge Science Festival runs from April 12-21 and promises, quite literally, something for everyone. Come celebrate spring and the sciences, and get to know your neighbors in the process. I hope to see you there.
