Where mind and hand come together in the spirit of hands-on learning
Build and test projects, learn new skills, explore madcap ideas, and get advice and encouragement—the Edgerton Center is the place where mind and hand come together.
The MIT Edgerton Center continues the hands-on legacy of beloved Institute Professor Harold (Doc) Edgerton. At the Edgerton Center, we believe that students can learn to master complex challenges, discover their competencies, and find their inspiration through hands-on project-based learning. To that end, we support student teams in engineering competitions, offer classes, provide workshop space, and engage students in service projects in developing countries. We also advance kindergarten through 12th grade STEM education through our classes, intenstive summer programs, curricula development, and professional development workshops.
