Cuseum Supports Tech Night at the Museum at the ICA Boston

Cuseum was excited to be back supporting TUGG’s second Tech Night at the Museum. The evening of fun, food, drink, and networking, sponsored by Invaluable & Cuseum, kicked off at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston with over 200 attendees from Boston’s tech community and TUGG’s nonprofits.

The attendees heard pitches from Mbadika, Media Girls, Resilient Coders, and Transformative Culture Project (TCP), each speaking about the many unique ways their organization supports the community through STEM, social media, art, or education.

After the empowering pitches, the crowd took over the museum. Each participating non-profit hosted an activity within the museum, which included a tour of Nari Ward: Sun Splashed with TCP, “a brown paper bag design thinking challenge” from Mbadika, a talk with an active Resilient Coder student, and a self-reflection activity with Media Girls.

Cuseum participated in Mbadika’s design challenge, and we had a blast putting our engineering caps on and using the eclectic assortment of materials in the paper bag to design something that could travel two feet. The key was to think outside the box (er, bag)!

The evening was captured on social media by the attendees themselves (encouraged by the generous promise of free tickets to the ICA’s newest exhibits for the winning posts!), and we’re so proud to announce that Cuseum won the instagram challenge with a post featuring the team posing with Ward’s Mango Tourists!
