Host a Festival Event

From lab tours and cutting-edge cancer research to the science of cocktails, Cambridge Science Festival is all about connecting scientists with the public to spark curiosity and share exciting local research.

While topics range from nano technology to the science of baseball,  CSF events all offer hands-on, engaging ways to learn.

Accepted events will be added to the online program on a rolling basis.
