About the Edgerton Center

Harold “Doc” Edgerton’s spirit of discovery lives on at the Edgerton Center where we give students the opportunity to learn by doing.

We educate students through student-led clubs and teams, courses in engineering and high-speed photography, and machine shops and a maker space where students design, fabricate, and test their out-of-the-classroom projects. We also have a K-12 science and engineering program that includes daily and weekly activities, and intensive summer camps.
