Curiosity abounds at Cambridge Science Festival
Sidewalk astronomy, robots that fly, culinary chemistry, and testing new video games? the Cambridge Science Festival may have something for everybody. Now in its sixth year, the festival runs April 20-29, and almost all events are free. “The whole idea is to make science accessible, engaging, and fun for everyone,” says festival director P.A. d’Arbeloff. Last year, an estimated 50,000 people attended. With more than 100 events in Cambridge and Boston, “this year is definitely bigger,” she says.
