Maker Lounge

Experience a dynamic new space at PEM!

The Maker Lounge is dedicated to creativity and innovation through hands-on exploration with technology, materials and ideas. It builds on PEM's tradition of bringing together new and inspiring objects from around the world and celebrating creative expression through human ingenuity.

Tackle a design challenge or tinker with all kinds of materials from circuits to cardboard saws. New programs are being developed for teens and adults including monthly 3-D printing workshops, demonstrations by visiting artists, scientists, engineers and other creatives -- including collaborators from MIT Media Lab, for example -- and cool maker programs for teens. Both energizing and relaxing, the space includes ambient music, iPads and universal phone chargers.

July and August

During the next two months stop by to work with our Maker Lounge interns, artists and art students who bring their own creativity to the everyday operations of this distinctive space. They will create and run occasional takeovers and answer your questions about Maker Lounge materials, including the Form 1 3-D printer. Check the calendar for upcoming takeovers.

Stop by, hang out and let your creativity fly.

The Maker Lounge is open during regular museum hours and for select special events and public programs. Check back here soon for more detailed programming information.
