BPS Science Fair – Expo Portal

Putting a focus on science and engineering is a major goal of the Boston Public Schools. We want all students to be scientifically literate and to develop an understanding of fundamental science and engineering concepts. Each year the Boston Science and Engineering Fair provides an opportunity for students to “do” science/engineering. As the students prepare for the fair, they not only learn important science and engineering concepts but they also learn how scientists and engineers investigate the world.

During the fair, which will take place at Northeastern’s Curry Student Center, we run a tabletop activity expo alongside the student’s projects, in which various STEM organizations demonstrate a STEM-related exhibit or short activity. The 2020 STEM activity Expo will take place from 10:30am – 1:30pm.

As the date grows closer, we will send additional information about final logistics and program information to registered participants. Please be aware that you may not sell things at the expo, but may give out flyers and/or prizes. If you need to cancel your participation at any time, please email Nicolas Fuchs.

Schedule:
Please plan to arrive at Curry Student Center, 2nd floor exhibition hall (building #50 on this map) by 10:00am – for expo set-up. The expo will run from 10:30am – 1:30pm. At the beginning, the expo will be open only to middle and high school students being judged at this science fair, but will open to the general public thereafter. Lunch will be provided for all expo participants.

Directions to the University can be found here. If you are driving, please park in the Renaissance Parking Garage at 835 Columbus Ave (TBD if we will be able to validate parking passes). If you’re taking public transit, please travel to Ruggles Station (Orange Line) or the Northeastern E train stop (Green Line).
