South Shore Science Festival
Families who have enjoyed the South Shore Science Festival the past four years will be happy to know there is more ahead this year while they’re learning about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math – STEM, or STEAM. This takes you away from a traditional textbook-only, single-subject approach or traditional science fairs into interactive activities where the attendees become enthusiastic about STEM and keep it going for years to come.
This year you can get an introduction to the science of lacrosse with the Boston Cannons, Quincy’s new semi-pro lacrosse team; learn the basics to program a Robot and what the new technologies bring with Positive BCS; have fun while understanding how medical devices from Boston Scientific save lives, have your picture taken with a Star Wars character and most important, support your friends from Saint Agatha that will be proudly representing our school sharing with others how fun is STEM!
Bring a friend, bring your family and have Fun!
