After Dark: Teeny/Tiny

Thursday, May 09, 2024 at 6:00pm to 9:00pm

MIT Museum
314 Main Street, Gambrill Center, Cambridge MA 02142

Join us as we explore science and technology at the smallest of scales. Meet Professor Kevin Chen, Head of MIT’s Soft and Micro Robotics Laboratory, and get a close-up look at his insect-inspired (and sized!) research. Then, head over to our learning labs to manipulate magnetic fluids or fold your own microscope to take home.

Local brews from Lamplighter and tasty pizza pies from Za available for purchase.
