    What do you get when you add 1 totally adorable, math loving girl + 1 charismatic and quirky purple cat?

    None other than Peg + Cat the heroes of the hit pre-school animated math-based series on PBS KIDS. Whether they’re singing, sorting, or estimating Peg + Cat are sure to use math to solve their everyday challenges. From collecting recycled cartons to keep the neighborhood park clean to rescuing her lovable cat from a tree Peg uses her imagination and problem-solving skills to come up with solutions to life’s fun-tastic BIG PROBLEMS.

    So in the words of Peg “Don’t Totally Freak out” come out and join us for a conversation with the acclaimed creators of Peg + Cat, Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson, as they take us behind the scenes of their Emmy Award winning show.

    Jen + Bill will share their approaches to solving the really big problems of creating and producing successful children's media. From design aesthetic to multiplatform and transmedia projects, our guests will provide insight on how to integrate complex STEM principles into appealing content for preschoolers. So join us this August to learn more.

    Hope you've all been enjoying this beautiful summer! We are gearing up for an awesome CMA event-packed fall, and we have some exciting news to share in the meantime…

    Have you ever wished you could attend a CMA New York event if only it weren't so far away or Amtrak tickets weren't so darn expensive? Well, wish no more: CMA Virtual Event Attendance is now a reality! 

    To celebrate this exciting milestone, CMA Boston is hosting a free in-person gathering for members and non-members alike on Monday, August 4th where we'll be virtually linking up with the NYC crew for an evening with the creators of the Emmy Award Winning PBS pre-school series, Peg + Cat! 

    Join us at CloudKid Studios (where the Peg + Cat Transmedia Suite is produced!) to virtually attend the event with our Boston group (including a live Q&A session where Boston attendees will be able to ask questions). Refreshments will be served!

    We are looking forward to celebrating this exciting milestone with all of you! If you're interested in attending this and future events from the comfort of your own home, be sure to take advantage of our first-year-only massively discounted membership rate.
