We had an amazing time participating in the 10th Anniversary of the Cambridge Science Festival and 100th Anniversary of MIT in Cambridge, where over 40,000 visitors from all over the Cambridge/Boston area came to visit for MIT’s open house festivities.
In collaboration with the MIT museum, we hosted a workshop for hundreds of visitors to come and contribute to Windows on Cambridge, a magnetic, glowing community mural. Each visitor created one light-up magnetic tile by cutting black silhouettes that represent their vision of Cambridge in 100 years. When these magnetic tiles were added to the mural panel, they lit up!

Windows on Cambridge will be on permanent display at the MIT Museum so please come visit and take a look!
We also hosted several paper electronics workshops around MIT and at the Media Lab for visitors to make their own light-up creations to take home!
Finally, we were invited to speak and lead a workshop session at the Chinese Education Symposium where educators from all over the world came to share their ideas on creative approaches to hands-on learning.
Here’s a beautiful card made during this workshop by a visiting educator:
What an exciting day of making! We hope you can join us next time ^_^
