A core element of the Edgerton Center’s mission is to provide students with the resources they need to turn their own project ideas into reality. Such self-initiated projects can be the most valuable educational experience of a student’s time at MIT.

As well, projects undertaken in our undergraduate courses such as 6.163 (Strobe Lab) or in our K-12 programs such as Engineering Design Workshop demonstrate, in physical form, learning by making.
