About the Edgerton Center

The MIT Edgerton Center continues the hands-on legacy of “Doc” Edgerton by providing students with the opportunity to learn by doing. We educate MIT students through student-led clubs and teams, courses in engineering and high-speed photography, and a set of machine shops and a maker space where students design, fabricate, and test their out-of-the-classroom projects. The center also offers a K-12 science and engineering program of daily visits, weekly programs, and intensive summer camps.
