Time to register your Science Festival workshop

On October 20th we had the opportunity to recognize the valuable volunteers and presenters from this year, at that time we kicked-off the preparation of the South Shore Science Festival IV scheduled on April 21st, 2018.


The key to success of the festival has been your presentations and workshops. Every time we have more and more presenters that want to be part of it.

Thus, we ask you to please take a few minutes of your busy week and register your workshop, presentation or booth.

If you have different activities, such as a booth and a presentation in a classroom, please register each one individually.


Here is the link to register your activity:


At the end, after you submit it, please save the URL in your favorites, you will need this one to be able to edit or update your activity, we will not have access to modify it.


Thank you so much!

Another Great Success at our Volunteer Recognition Event!

Another Great Success at our Volunteer Recognition Event!

Thank you to all the presenters and volunteers who came , and we also appreciate the company of Massachusetts Representative Tackey Chan who joined us, too.

A good time was had by all.  Each of the participants shared their experience from this past April and you could sense eagerness to be part of the next South Shore Science Festival — our 4th — in 2018.  Getting to know each other this way is not only a positive thing for the festival itself, it’s fun.

Thank you also to our Recognition Event Sponsors: Dassault Systems, Gateway to Science: Sports & Games and Positive BCS
