Want to learn more about the scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs who made Boston one of the most innovative cities in the world? And get a feel for the places that are spawning a whole new wave of breakthroughs? Join us on November 10th for a one-time-only walking tour of the Innovation Trail of Boston and Cambridge.
ALL proceeds will be donated to a worthy nonprofit. And when you register, you get a vote on which one. (Your four choices: Computer Clubhouse, Science Club for Girls, BUILD Boston, or the MassTLC Education Foundation.)
We'll visit the Ether Dome at Mass General Hospital, where anesthesia was first demonstrated successfully...the Cambridge Innovation Center, where hundreds of entrepreneurs work in a single building...Akamai's Network Operations Command Center...MIT research labs...and more.
We'll plan to gather at noon somewhere you can grab coffee or a snack — you'll get details when you register — and start promptly at 12:30. The starting point is close to the Park Street, Government Center, State Street, and Downtown Crossing T stops. We'll wrap up within walking distance of the Central and Kendall T stops on the Red Line (which will return you quickly to Park Street.) You'll also be close to good spots to grab a drink, a coffee, or an ice cream cone.
We hope you can join us.
(We'll reschedule in the event of pouring rain, but otherwise will run the tour on Nov 10th.)
