Create hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) activities and demonstrations for Science on the Street!
Thanks to the MIT Graduate Student Council, ComMIT and SciStreet are hosting a SciStreet Hackathon to bring together students in teams to create interesting and interactive hands-on activities and demonstrations for public audiences on STEAM topics and themes.
The top 5 teams will get $100 in funding to design the hands-on activity or demonstration, and will then be able to present them to the public as part of the SciStreet team.
Note: Most attendees will be looking to create their team at the event. If you have a team already, that's great! We recommend fewer than 6 per team.
Science on the Street (SciStreet) is a mobile program out of the Cambridge Science Festival to make STEAM accessible, engaging, and fun for all. SciStreet goes out into community events, fairs, cultural festivals, after school programs, parks, and other "non-science" spaces to engage audiences with the STEAM in their lives. The CSF created SciStreet to particularly reach people who don't opt-in to science experiences.
Founded last year, Communicating Science @ MIT (ComMIT) is a student society promoting communication in science, engineering, and mathematics. ComMIT events help students convey their work and enthusiasm to the public – whether through writing, visual media, art, or teaching. Check out commit.mit.edu for info on upcoming events and more information about Boston area science outreach opportunities.
