Science Carnival & Robot Zoo

Saturday, April 15, Noon – 4:00pm

449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA (At Cambridge Public Library and Rindge & Latin High School)

Join us at the FREE Science Carnival & Robot Zoo! Drop-in, no registration required.

The Science Carnival and Robot Zoo is a family-friendly expo with more than 100 ways to explore, build, learn and — most importantly — have fun!

Have you ever driven an underwater robot?  You can at the Science Carnival and Robot Zoo! Play catch with a robot or play mind games with your friends. Launch rockets, taste a fresh batch of liquid nitrogen ice cream, hold a brain in your hands (really!), and chat with scientists.  Come early and explore everything!!

Food trucks will be on site in addition to local restaurant options.

Walk, Bike, Take the T! Parking is extremely difficult. The Carnival is a short walk from the Harvard Square Station and is served by MBTA bus lines. More information from MBTA.
