Explore Edgerton


The Edgerton Center upholds the legacy of Harold “Doc” Edgerton by providing the necessary resources, encouragement, and support for students to gain an education in engineering both in the conventional classroom and particularly outside of it.

The Center serves MIT students, faculty, and staff; students and teachers in kindergarten through grade 12; and high-speed-imaging professionals.

Whether students use Edgerton machine tools to fabricate components for a research project, their water-jet cutter to fabricate a brake rotor, their high-speed-imaging equipment to measure the motion of a butterfly wing, or their curriculum to explain electricity to a fourth-grader, the Center cultivates an overarching ethos of building, learning, and sharing.
