...a student organized event in the spirit of the MIT Independent Activities Period, but even scrappier and more agile. It was a blast and reminded me why the Media Lab is so cool.

The original Festival of Learning was created and organized by an amazing group of graduate students at the Media Lab in 2013 & 2014. Since then, the event has been on hiatus, but in 2019 it will be making a comeback!!! We're very grateful for the  legacy left for us from the original organizing team. A special hat tip to Eric Rosenbaum & Ricarose Roque for their guidance during the planning process. We're honored to be organizing this year's Festival in celebration of our unique learning community here at the Media Lab.
