Carnival presentation of human brain

Join the FREE annual Science Carnival and Robot Zoo! This is our largest family event, with over 100 ways to get hands-on with cool science.

Make liquid nitrogen ice cream with British International School of Boston, pull on a lab coat and whip up a batch of slime with Pfizer, hold a human brain with researchers from McLean, explore VR with the American Welding Society and launch rockets on the lawn!

Find us in and around Cambridge Public Library, War Memorial Recreation Center and Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School.

Parking is very limited! Take the T to Harvard and walk over. Also accessible by bus.
