Just because school's out for February break doesn't mean kids can't still learn something -- and have fun doing it!

Explore the wonders of science at a free science fair during Winter on the Waterfront at District Hall.


As part of Winter on the Waterfront's Family Fun Week, District Hall in Boston's buzzing Innovation District will play host to its first ever science fair tomorrow afternoon. During the event, some of the best and brightest local tech companies on the verge of incredible breakthroughs will entertain, enlighten, and inspire kids of all ages into new heights of thinking. Say goodbye to the three-cornered posterboards in the lunchroom science fair -- this one is sure to blow them away! Mad Science of Greater Boston will present a science show for children that highlights some of the best of Mad Science. Mad Science’s high energy demonstrations are fun and sure to leave the children with memories that last well beyond the grand finale. The show will also include foggy dry ice and demonstrations of how science is used to float beach balls in the air. And, with suggestions from the audience, the Mad Scientist will unlock the mystery of how to get “Egg-bert” back into his house. Ever seen scissors sizzle and shiver? Ever taken a bubble shower? Here’s your chance! Sat., Feb. 15, noon - 3 p.m. Free. All ages. District Hall, 75 Northern Ave., Boston. www.winteronthewaterfront.org
