Featuring the projects created by the MaSTEM students, join The Reynolds Center's FabMaker Faire at the Boston Maker Faire.

All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they create with their bare hands and bold minds, and to share how they do it, why they do it, and what they learn. Maker Faires are community-based learning events that inspire everyone to think creatively and with innovation, and to connect with people and projects in their local community.
