CMMC has received a $15,000 grant as part of the Innovation Generation program from the Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, Inc. Through the grant, the CMMC will expand its education programs which include summer-science classes for elementary and middle-school students; after-school sessions for middle- and high-school students and evening programs for elementary-aged students and their families.
A sincere 'thank you' to all who have visited us in 2013. Looking forward to next season, CMMC will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the construction of the Marconi complex with special exhibits in the newly renovated Hotel Nautilus.
Also a special thanks to our dedicated volunteers who staffed the museum in 2013. We hope we can count on you again next year. As CMMC continues to grow, we look forward to welcoming more volunteers in 2014.
In August we unveiled the "preview" of our upcoming 2014 exhibit titled "Tracking the Great White Shark." The CMMC exhibit will emphasize the wireless and satellite technologies utilized in shark tracking. In our preparation of this exhibit, we gratefully acknowledge the support of Dr. Greg Skomal (MA Dept of Marine Fisheries) and OCEARCH. The official opening of this exhibit will be in Spring 2014 and housed in the Hotel Nautilus.
CMMC will continue working with local school districts into the 2013-14 school year. This winter we plan offer Family STEM nights to expose students and parents to exciting topics in science, technology, engineering and math.
In early 2014 we will announce our Summer STEM program building on the positive student and parent feedback from last summer's participants.
Videos, activites, and interactive displays appealing to all ages including young students, Titanic buffs, Radio buffs and WWII vets. New and expanded exhibits coming in 2013 as part of the 100th anniversary of the construction of the Marconi complex.

The renovation which began in the spring of 2013 has made great progress and will soon be nearing completion. The official opening will be in 2014 with the unveiling of new exhibits housed in the hotel space.
The building is commonly referred to as Hotel Nautilus from its days as a hotel while the rest of the Marconi complex was being completed in 1914. Later it was used by the early RCA staff and the Navy in WWII. The first floor will be converted into expanded exhibit space, education center, meeting space, archival space and administrative space.
