Numerous other organizations including the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, the National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, Greenbrier Nature Center, Cambridge Science Festival’s Science in the Streets, Suffolk University, the American Chemical Society, OceansWide from Maine, Lewis Bay Research Center, SeaBotix and NOAA Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary will be participating.

There will be several merit badge opportunities for Boy and Girl Scouts including Chemistry and Oceanography in the morning session.

The event is open to the public and will be specifically marketed to students Cape-wide in grades K-12 as well as to Boy and Girl Scouts on the Cape and Islands and Southeastern Mass. Our award-winning 2014 STEM Journey had over 750 attendees and this year’s program is likely to attract around 1000.
