Cambridge Science Festival 2016

TERC workshops at the Cambridge Science Festival

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

TERC project workshops at the 10th anniversary Cambridge Science Festival were full and fun. Check out the projects that were represented this year.

Say It With Shapes and Numbers

Jugando juegos, construyendo torres, y contando cuentos … Todo con las matemáticas. (Play games, build towers, and tell stories—all with math!) Explore ways to mix the math of sizes, shapes, patterns, logic, and numbers into just about everything you do with projects and activities that mix in math. All designed for adults to use with 3-6 year old children and based on research and development funded by The National Science Foundation.   

Zoombinis and the Art and Science of STEM Games

Play STEM-infused games like Zoombinis, Ravenous, Quantum Spectre, and Impulse. Meet the game designers and learn how they are inspired by science and technology. For students in grades 3-8 and their families. 

Energy on the Move!

Where did it come from? Where did it go? Energy is making things happen all around us (and inside of us too!)

We can’t see energy but there are ways to track it. Explore some simple systems and the energy that moves through them, using hands-on investigations designed for children in grades 4 – 6 and their families.
