About Lowell
map
Lowell Massachusetts is located in northeastern Massachusetts about 25 miles north of Boston and is accessible via the major highways of routes 495, 3, and 93 as well as the MBTA commuter rail.

Lowell's National Park serves as a tribute to the Industrial Revolution and the textile industry that was so much a part of New England in the 19th century. The rehabbed mill buildings, the trolley and canal, and the museums are all part of Lowell's Historical tours.

The 19th century mill buildings host small and large companies at unique financial incentives which serves to promote new growth and development in Lowell. The Lowell Auditorium is a 3,200 seat venue which hosts many of the country's best performers at very reasonable prices.

The city's workforce is computer literate and supported by the schools in the district. Lowell is home to the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and Middlesex Community College. The student population creates a profitable atmosphere for retail businesses in downtown Lowell and surrounding neighborhood.

Lowell is built around the Merrimack River and its diverse canal system which adds to its character and appeal. Residents proudly proclaim that Lowell has something for everyone with its unmatched quality of life.

The late Ed McMahon from the Tonight Show was born in Detroit and grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts. He got his start on television playing a circus clown on the 1950-51 variety series Big Top.

Lowell Makes 1st Anniversary Hackathon

http://monitoringourrivers.challengepost.com/

Theme: Monitoring Our Rivers
24 Hours from 12:00 PM to 12:00 PM, November 1 st to 2nd
Lowell Makes invites you to our 1st Anniversary Hackathon, taking place November 1st-2nd in our space at 47 Lee Street
in downtown Lowell. The rules are the simple: Participants will have 24 hours to make something that addresses the
hackathon's theme, and they must do it on site at Lowell Makes. Participants may be individuals or teams of any size.
This year's theme is "Monitoring Our Rivers." For Lowell-area folks, that typically means the Merrimack and Concord
rivers, which merge right in downtown Lowell. However, this hackathon is meant to challenge and inspire people to
devise ways to monitor and track information about any river, anywhere.
What kind of monitoring? That is up to you. It could be a distributed network of sensors that tracks water level,
turbidity, contamination, Ph level, or other water quality and conditional metrics you believe important to track and
share knowledge of. It could be software that aggregates data from numerous sources to derive new insights and
information. Your imagination and creativity are the only limits.
It is a little-known fact that most rivers are not actively monitored. The effects of construction, damming and other
activities on rivers, their ecosystems, and those who live around the rivers often go unnoticed until a tragic event occurs.
Today's modern computers and electronics, combined with the Internet and crowd-sourced data gathering and sharing
could enable never before imagined capabilities to understand the health of our rivers and waterways, allowing for
proactive water management and protection.
The hackathon is open to all members of the public. Minors may participate with parental or guardian supervision. All
participants or their parent/guardian will be required to sign our standard liability waiver and agree to our rules of
conduct.
Participants will have from 12:00 PM on Saturday, November 1st until 12:00 PM on Sunday, November 2nd. Participant
are not required to stay for the entire period, but all assembly, code writing, testing, etc. must be done on premises
during the hackathon.
Judges from a wide variety of professional and civic backgrounds will award cash and other prizes. Winners will be
announced on Wednesday, November 5th at the Lowell Makes weekly open house.
If you have questions, please email info@lowellmakes.com. To participate, simply arrive at Lowell Makes by 11:45 AM
on Saturday, November 1st.

"Dusk Rings a Bell"
Dusk Rings a Bell: Romantic Drama Set by the Sea

When Molly, a divorced PR exec, returns to her childhood vacation home to retrieve an old memento, she encounters a time capsule of an entirely different sort in Dusk Rings a Bell. The souvenir in question is actually Ray, an old fling from her adolescent years, now working as a landscaper and caretaker. As they begin to renew their romance, Ray reveals a shocking crime in his past that left him incarcerated for ten years. What follows is a lyrical and poignant tale of the hopefulness of youth contrasted with the painful realities of life. Michael Bloom directs a stunning new production of this melancholic romance from playwright Stephen Belber and Merrimack Repertory Theatre.
