Event Description: 

This TEDx Adventure is being produced in association with TEDx Beacon Street.

There will be TWO sessions of this workshop. The first, on Saturday, November 21, 2015, is for the general public. The second session, on December 5, 2015, is for people on the autism spectrum.

Join Bruce Rosenbaum, Steampunk Designer Extraordinaire and Founder of ModVic, in bringing together the domains of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, and History to create new inventions from obsolete contraptions and equipment. After learning about Steampunk artifacts and design principles, participants will explore the rich histories of the items surrounding them in the iconic Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation.

Rudy Ruggles of Future Fixers and artist Kelley Harwood will then help participants use their knowledge, imagination, and the inspirational items surrounding them to draw up plans for all new Steampunk-inspired creations. The adventure concludes with a visit to Waltham mechanical artist Todd Cahill’s nearby Steamachine Workshop, where participants will see 100-year-old machinery being used to fabricate current Steampunk projects.

This workshop is recommended for adults and youth aged 14+ and can accommodate up to 15 participants (minimum of 5 needed) on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants should plan to attend for the duration of the session. Any questions? Email: Bruce Rosenbaum
