Innovations of Cambridge Tour
About the Tour (80-90 minutes)
Clad in top hats, we introduced you to the eminent past surrounding Harvard Square. Now, as we don lab coats, we invite you to explore the history-makers in Kendall Square too! Discover the bridge builders that shaped East Cambridge and watch inquiring minds at work unzipping the secrets of our genes. Walk in the shadow of the world’s most productive innovators, and see where MIT students have played gigantic games of Tetris, parked emergency vehicles at incredible heights, and still found time to invent both Guitar Hero and a biomechatronic foot. Plug yourself into the history being made every day on our Innovations Tour in Kendall Square. Just look for the guide in a Lab Coat!
This tour is also available in Spanish, French, and Italian.
