Virtual South Shore Science Festival 2021

For the safety of all, the South Shore Science Festival organization team decided to continue this year the South Shore Science Festival to everyone in a Virtual way, since we are driven by STEM, we will leverage avant-garde Technology to  bring the excitement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math  to all our audience.

In this way we keep children and presenters safe, in a path back to our normal live, while still delivering the opportunity for children, teenagers and families to learn how much fun STEM is, in a virtual manner. By now, most of our audience is very use to it, including for most of our presenters, it was new for many last year, but for many of us and for some presenters, we have solid experience managing virtual teams and events for several years.

We must not let COVID-19 take away the experience of learning, and with virtual learning we will continue to reach our audience.

The format of the new festival will include (1) live broadcasted presentations / activities of 25 minutes each, plus (2) some pre-recorded activities that we will place in our YouTube channel for people to access during the festival and in the future.

We continue to use Zoom as the platform to conduct the South Shore Science Festival.

If you would like to attend and enjoy the festival register now at our website:

Are you familiar with the STEM, or STEAM, approach to teaching?  It aims to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics.  It steps away from the traditional textbook-only, single-subject approach to show the relationships among these areas.


Science and math have practical applications by bringing in engineering and technology.  The arts, including music, are based on the science of light and color as well as sound, and much more.  This broad-based approach will reach more students with all their different ranges of strengths.

Every week we will be presenting a flavor of the festival, opportunities for you to be part of it, and a sample of recent technology we offered. In addition, we will suggest some STEM events happening in this area.
