Science on the Street (SciStreet)

We're breathing easier here at the Cambridge Science Festival office.  But we're about to take a deep breath to dive into Science on the Street. 

What is SciStreet, you ask?  Well, it's our new initiative to reach more people - especially folks who wouldn't normally glance twice at a Science Festival event - in places where they are not expecting us.  We want to take the fun (and sometimes quirky) science activities, wows, demonstrations, and more into other community and cultural festivals.  We dipped our toes into the water for this effort last year at various community events (which were awesome - see below). 

These girls had just made some paper helicopters at Cambridge Carnival 2011. 
And now we've got a full calendar ahead for this summer and fall. 
We're going to the Boston Public Schools Middle O - orientation for rising 6th graders at Fenway Park, Northeastern's Science Sunday, a summer camp for HIV-positive students, El Planeta's Health & Family event, and so much more!
