PLEASE NOTE: Due to precautions taken by MIT in light of the Coronavirus situation, the museum is not accepting reservation requests for K-12 group visits through September 1, 2020.

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 increasingly college, adult, senior, and corporate groups are 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. 

Teacher professional development opportunities are also available. Please email for more information.
