The Museum will continue its annual support of STEM Week engagement for elementary school learners and their educators by offering virtual learning experiences every day of STEM Week (October 18-22), at 10:00am and 1:00pm ET. These 45-minute live virtual events, broadcasted directly into elementary school classrooms, will be offered by Museum staff, Girlstart, Scratch, Tinkercad, Brandeis Maker Lab, ModVic Steampunk, Russian School of Math, and more! Teachers, school administrators, and parent/guardians can find full details and register for FREE by following this linkEach live virtual STEAM event would simply require the classroom or household to have a projector, smart board, or display device to broadcast the Zoom experiences.

 

Massachusetts STEM Week ends with the hands-on CreatedBy Festival celebrating the inspirational work of local artists, technologists, innovators, and creative do-ers! This year's event hosts a carefully curated group of exhibitors and partners, including Artisan's Asylum, New England FIRST, Brandeis Maker Lab, and more!

 

The CreatedBy Festival is an important part of Mass STEM Week that is specifically geared towards a younger age - older elementary school aged kids and their families. Boston Children’s Museum draws on its long tradition and history of STEAM innovation in service of children and families exploring, experimenting, and learning together. The CreatedBy Festival is an exciting new way to connect outside the walls of the Museum and a testament to how technology can bring us all together.

 

The CreatedBy Festival brings together Boston’s technology innovators, designers, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, crafters, students, and more, and introduces them to the many adults and children that attend. It is an opportunity for the creators that make Boston an international leader in innovation to share their work and inspire the next generation of visionaries to go out and change the world.


“It is a gift to partner with such talented, enthusiastic advocates for STEAM education and creativity – they really care about inspiring others and sharing what they do,” said Neil Tembulkar, Director of Strategic Initiatives. “Boston Children’s Museum is again planting a flag in the ground as a hub for local innovators to engage with younger families in a meaningful way. The return of the CreatedBy Festival is yet another example of the Museum’s resilience and commitment to hosting opportunities for families to play, explore, and discover the world and themselves. Visitors to the CreatedBy Festival will be excited to hear that all their favorite exhibits are open during the Festival with dozens of bonus hands-on activities, show-and-tells, and demonstrations all for the price of a regular admissions ticket!”
