Annual Nantucket Science Festival
The Nantucket Land Council is thrilled to be sponsoring the Maria Mitchell Association’s annual Science Festival from March 13th-March 20th, 2021. Since 2015, the Nantucket Science Festival has been held as a free event for all ages to enjoy. Demos, crafts, science experiments, and outdoor activities are offered each day of the week for anyone interested. NLC is excited to contribute a three-part series exploring Nantucket’s weather and inviting children to build their own backyard weather station to explore Nantucket’s daily environment. Creating your own weather station allows you to explore the details of Nantucket’s weather, including yearly weather patterns that researchers use to track climate change here and around the world. Join them on March 13th-20th as the island community explores the natural world through science!
