Rain or shine – in the event of inclement weather event will be held indoors

On Saturday, April 21, 2018, the Science on State Street festival takes over the campus of Framingham State University once again; and just like FSU itself, this event just keeps getting better!

As if the usual extravaganza of FSU student, faculty, and industry-led exhibits and hands-on experiences for the whole family wasn’t enough, this year’s festival will take it to the next level. Highlights include a keynote speaker from the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, exhibits from over 40 organizations, several engaging presentations from the STEM on Stage (ASL Interpreters available), and of course, lots of free shows in the University’s amazing HD Planetarium. 

Free Parking – Food available for purchase.
