Scientists with senses of humor are traveling this month with the 2014 Ig Nobel tour of Europe, including a book launch celebration for founder Marc Abrahams.
Girls interested in careers using science, technology, engineering or math may be interested in attending a $45, one-day summit called Girls STEM Summit-East taking place April 26 at MIT.
In honor of the Olympics, here are the gold, silver and bronze medal award winners in the competition for City Council frustrations for talk about the Foundry building in East Cambridge.
TGIM, or whatever. If the idea of starting another workweek is getting you down, why not start it off easy with some comedy tweets from local comedians?
See science and art meet. Have your choice of Day of the Dead parties.“Destroy All Monsters” at a late-night sake party. Get all your “Hamlet” answers. And explore the boundaries of free speech.
Watch a hell of a lot of movies for a good cause. Follow the sounds of Honk! to Oktoberfest. See who made it from the red carpet to the artist’s canvas. Check out that moon. And enjoy a night of classical music for $5 courtesy of the MIT Symphony Orchestra.
See what the women of science fiction and fantasy are doing. Hear the songs of the Mediaeval Baebes and a world-premiere Anthology. Laugh more at “Hamlet” than ever, and more appropriately. Make your way to the Maker Faire. And Experience the funniest science since the Ig Nobels.
This feast of visual spectacular wows, each one outdoing the last, drives the film as much as the hanging-by-a-thread survival yarn. But “Gravity” lacks a spark that would make us truly care about its heroic characters.
Shop the Harvard Book Store Warehouse Weekend. Celebrate Serbfest. See “Much Ado About Nothing” live or on film. Learn and laugh at the (relatively) lightning-fast Ig Informal Lectures. Or have a sophisticated night with “8 Femmes.”
Experience life within the bubble (literally). Ride “The Sense of Unity Healing Machine” (also literally). Honor slain MIT police officer Sean Collier with a ’60s-inspired benefit concert. Get your face painted by an actual, amazing artist. Help launch the Together Festival with music and video art.
