The next South Shore Science Festival is Saturday, April 22, 2017, from 10 to 3.  
Same location:  180 Old Colony Avenue, Quincy, Mass. (10 minute walk from the Wollaston T on the Red Line)  That's the Quincy Center for Innovation.  This is part of the Cambridge Science Festival, which is now statewide.

STEM (as it's more often referred to) and STEAM are guide words in education now:  
Science -- Technology -- Engineering -- Arts -- Mathematics

Rather than teaching the traditional subjects of science, art and math separately, combining them makes them much more meaningful.  Including technology and engineering makes them much more practical.  

Many of the same presenters from the last two years will be there again, with a number of new presenters, too.  (Some of them were students who shared their science fair exhibits with us.)  As plans become more firmed up, I'll list them in this post.  See for pictures from the past two festivals.
