Projects and Prototypes


This exhibition features inventive projects and kinetic sculpture by MIT students exemplifying MIT's legendary values of creativity, ingenuity and practical problem solving. Through the experience of creating work for display at the MIT Museum, students learn to use new tools, to work collaboratively, and to demonstrate what they've learned to visitors.
