(FYI... I'm forwarding this to the Nerd Fun email list to support the Cambridge Science Festival - Heather)

The 2013 Cambridge Science Festival (April 12-21) is recruiting presenters and demos for its 10-day celebration of the STEM in our lives! This past year's festival featured more than 100 fun, interactive events for kids, families and adults.

2013's theme days include:
- Robot Zoo (April 13th, during the Science Carnival and National Robotics Week)
- Arts and Sciences (seeking a signature event for April 14th: a performance, exhibit or anything else)
- Space and Rockets / Rocket Day (April 20th, on National Astronomy Day)

General info on festival proposals and other themes here.

The Call for Entries is below. 2012's program is here. Despite the deadline, proposals are still being accepted for the final online program instead of the hard copy version.

Thanks everyone for your time and interest!
