Tech Kitchen

Come meet inventors, innovators, and high-tech tinkerers through the Museum’s dynamic new Tech Kitchen program. We host everyone from entrepreneurs to established tech companies as they prototype, experiment, and test their newest tools and gadgets. Past innovators have presented video games, robots, state-of-the-art building blocks, kid-friendly apps, and more. 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!

Innovators who have recently participated in Tech Kitchen include:

  • DevTech Research Group from Tufts University – gathered feedback on their CRISPEE tool, designed to introduce young children to bioengineering
  • Me-J - Shared their new digital music application with visitors young and old
  • ReGame-VR Lab from Northeastern University – Tested virtual reality games designed to help children engaged in physical therapy and rehab programs
  • Trivium - Prototyped a fully interactive art history experience in development for an art museum
  • Unruly Studios – Showcased prototypes of its Splat! coding game interactive
