On November 18th, 2021, The Edgerton Center celebrated 20 Years of the MIT Motorsports team with a virtual reunion. Moderated by current team captain Valeriia Tyshchenko ’23, over 50 students and alumni joined together to reminisce over the team — noting that the team is now older than some of its members.
When Campus Preview Weekend (CPW) at MIT was canceled last spring due to Covid-19, the Admissions Office looked to the Edgerton Center for creative ways to provide admitted students a taste of MIT remotely.
Curiosity is one character trait MIT students share. One Edgerton Center seminar helps students explore their natural creativity in unexpected ways. EC.050/090, “Re-create Experiments From History: Inform the Future from the Past” is open to all undergraduate and graduate students. Using the re-creation of famous historical experiments as a springboard, this course combines history, science, art, indigenous studies, and reflections on personal experiences.
