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.

13 Things About Ed Carpolotti Book, Music and Lyrics by Barry Kleinbort

When in debt, panic. Then sing.

 


Virginia Carpolotti is a devoted widow with loving memories for her recently-deceased husband. Though her love endures, her confidence in him flounders as one shady character after another comes calling for the debt that Ed put in her name, and things really heat up when a mysterious $1million ransom note appears. A delightful comic musical featuring Tony Award-nominee Penny Fuller.

Soldering Workshop

If you’ve never soldered before, this is the class for you! This course teaches through-hole (90% of electronic kits) soldering and is recommended for the beginner. This is a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder through-hole components. Soldering can be daunting for the first solder joint, then the 2nd solder joint is not so bad, and by the time you’ve assembled the blinky grid, you will be quite confident and proficient in basic soldering skills.

Classes take place at Lowell Makes. We provide all the tools, irons, solder, parts, and seats for up to 10 students.

The class is expected to take around 1.5 hour to complete, there is a buffer built in in case we go a bit longer.

Prerequisites: None! Just bring yourself. The class price includes the cost of the WeevilEye kit.

What to bring: Lowell Makes will provide all the tools, irons and solder.

Proceeds above will go to help support Lowell Makes.

Time and Place: Saturday August 9th from 10am to 2:00pm at the Lowell Makes
