Come make something! Join us every Saturday to discover your inner inventor in our new STEAM making space, the Tech Kitchen. Through both staff-led workshops and visits from local tech innovators, the Tech Kitchen provides a facilitated space for children to experiment with tools and technology. The repertoire of programming features a wide range of hands-on activities for makers young and old, from hammering to coding to sewing to circuitry, as well as technologies you’ve never seen before! 

The Tech Kitchen also hosts local entrepreneurs, established tech companies, start-ups, inventors and tinkerers, who share their latest inventions with Museum visitors. Past innovators have shared new products including video games, electronic equipment, state-of-the-art building blocks, and kid-friendly apps with visitors. These programs offer a fun way for children and grown-ups to engage with members of Boston’s technology community, learn about real-world STEAM applications, and explore something new together! Examples of tech innovators who have participated in Tech Kitchen: 

  • BOSEBuild - Sent its BOSEBuild division to pilot a DIY Bluetooth speaker system that is under development
  • iRobot - Brought several robots and robot prototypes
  • Me-J - Shared their new digital music application with visitors young and old
  • Trivium - Prototyped a fully interactive art history experience in development for an art museum
  • Unruly Studios – Showcased prototypes of its Splat! coding game interactive
  • Velcro - Displayed their new Velcro building blocks in the Tech Kitchen where visitors built race cars, dinosaurs, and robots
  • Woobo - Highlighted their high-tech children’s toy that uses artificial intelligence to promote learning and exploration in young children
