Workshops

Inspire interest in science, technology, engineering, and art through our unique, hands-on workshops. Students grades 6-12 have long given them high marks. And now, college, adult, senior, and corporate groups are increasingly finding them a great option for educational and team-building outings.

Our two-hour workshops connect participants with MIT research and Museum exhibitions, and include a series of activities in our classroom, led by an instructor. We offer a range of topics. Please take a look below to decide which one is best for your group.
