Cambridge Science Festival Announces Statewide Year-Round Science Outreach Initiative: Biogen Idec Foundation Science On The Street

The Cambridge Science Festival (CSF) today announced “Biogen Idec Foundation Science on the Street,” a new statewide, year-round outreach initiative to bring engaging science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) demonstrations and activities to thousands of people annually. Biogen Idec Foundation Science on the Street will make STEM more accessible and fun through inspiring researchers and innovators taking part in arts, cultural, and community events throughout Massachusetts.

“It’s important that we don’t only celebrate science where it’s already flourishing,” said John R. Durant, Executive Director of the Cambridge Science Festival and Director of the MIT Museum. “Biogen Idec Foundation Science on the Street allows us to take leading-edge science being worked in labs and centers at MIT, Harvard, Biogen Idec, and throughout the Cambridge area, and bring that directly into communities in every corner of the state.”

Thanks to the generosity of lead funder Biogen Idec Foundation, all outreach bookings are free for the community organizations. Biogen Idec Foundation has awarded the Cambridge Science Festival a $250,000 grant to fund Biogen Idec Foundation Science on the Street.

“This grant underscores the Foundation’s commitment to enhancing STEM education in our communities,” said Tony Kingsley, Chairman, Biogen Idec Foundation. “Our hope is to excite and inspire the next generation of innovators and scientists by sparking curiosity and exposing children to new ideas and challenges.”

Biogen Idec Foundation Science on the Street is an initiative of the Cambridge Science Festival, a 10-day STEM celebration that now serves as a model for festivals across the United States and beyond. In Cambridge alone, CSF engages more than 50,000 people through more than 100 different activities and events. The sixth annual festival, held this past April, once again brought together school groups, biotechnology companies, academic science outreach coordinators, engineering clubs, and more. As happens every year, attendees made new discoveries, and fresh collaborations were sparked among participants.
