While this year’s Cambridge Science Festival may be cancelled, the Cambridge Police Department will still host a virtual Cambridge Science Festival event this Friday, April 24 at 11:30am on Facebook Live. This special event will feature the Cambridge Police Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit, including Bomb Dogs Dixie and Tango, Sergeant Frammartino and Officer Tierney. Viewers will meet and learn about the unique abilities of Dixie and Tango, and how they can detect and deconstruct odors with their sense of smell. Officers will highlight the special training the dogs receive in order to be effective in their roles. Viewers will also have an opportunity to ask Officers questions.

Event continues to run during April vacation.
