CreatedBy Festival 2019 (formerly the Boston Mini Maker Faire), produced by Boston Children’s Museum, is an annual showcase and festival of ingenuity, imagination, and cross-disciplinary creativity. The CreatedBy Festival features a variety of local creatives, technologists, performers, artists, and speakers. This year, the Museum is proud to partner with Massachusetts STEM Week, a statewide initiative to engage students in hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math activities.
Attendees can see and interact with creative innovators, artists, and do-it-yourself-ers, and get inspired about the power and potential of creating, inventing, and making. The two day event will include a variety of demonstrations, workshops, performances, and hands-on activities. Artisan’s Asylum, one of the biggest makerspaces in New England, will be exhibiting robotics projects, art spectacles, and hands-on activities. NE FIRST will be showcasing robotics projects built by students of various ages, from kindergartners to high schoolers. Higher education will also be represented by makers from Olin College, Brandeis Maker Lab, and Tufts Make Club.
