Net Works: MIT and the Internet


Net Works: MIT and the Internet

MIT Students at Akamai © Allan Doyle, MIT Museum

The Internet is an integral part of many people's lives, but how does it really work? And how have MIT and the Internet evolved together?

An MIT undergraduate class, Exhibiting Science, examines these questions and many more in this student-curated exhibit. From attacks on websites, to crowd-funding, to innovations in online learning, students in the class show you what they think is most interesting about the Internet, and how the Internet works.
