We’re taking to the streets this year to explore STEM, and we invite you to join us. The event is open ot the entire community. Come show off what your business or organization does, share your expertise, and connect!

Morning exhibits: 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, Brewster

Afternoon exhibits: 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Cape Cod Community College, West Barnstable

Science on the Street is set for March 18, 2017. It is a day-long immersion in the ways science, technology, engineering, and math come into play—and work—in real life, right here on Cape Cod.

We’re reaching across the Cape with a new format and some new partners this year. But as with the STEM Journeys we collaborated on in the past, this event is an important opportunity for local schools, organizations, and businesses to highlight the ways that their work relies on and builds on STEM knowledge and skills.

Being a part of Science on the Street is a great way to share the STEM in your world with students, scientists, teachers, parents, and other community members who are curious about STEM fields. Pledge to inspire more STEM learning and reserve your exhibitor’s spot now!

One of our Science on the Street co-hosts is the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History. Exhibits focused on the natural world will be hosted by the museum. Barbara Knoss at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History will be the representative there.

Exhibits featuring other science, engineering, or technology areas will be hosted by us, the Cape Cod Regional STEM Network at Cape Cod Community College. Reach out to Jill Neumayer with questions about exhibiting in these areas. Classes and school groups are encouraged to present their work as well again this year. Contact Jill if you want to participate.

Cambridge Science Festival/Science on the Street is our other co-host this year. They are in their 11th year and we are so grateful for their experience with multi-venue events.

Let us know that you plan to participate. We’re ready to help you envision your exhibit. And as at past STEM Journeys, there is no cost to exhibitors, presenters or participants.
