Students design, build, and test mechanisms for ship propulsion in this introduction to nature-inspired engineering at MIT. This workshop features examples from MIT research labs and the Museum’s Hart Nautical collection and a mini-tour of the Museum’s Robots & Beyond gallery.. I need a minimum of 15 students to run this class.

Chaperon Policy: Only 3 parents can attend this class as chaperons, (and we need to have 3), if you wish to chaperon this class please post in the facebook group here. If you feel you need to be in the classroom with your child please let me know so I can make sure this happens for you.

Due to a lack of interest I will not be running this class. I have canceled our reservation and refunded everyone who enrolled.

We currently have 0 seats available in this class.

Travel Tips: Parking options, you may reserve parking beforehand to know you have a spot for $22. The lot nearby is $22 but small and not guaranteed. Also available is metered parking which is obviously first come first serve. I have been told that you will be ticketed if you park at a meter for more than two hours, after two hours you need to change spaces.

Age: This activity is appropriate for grades 6-10, the MIT museum does not teach classes to children before 6th grade. Children are expected to have skills equivalent to this grade level.

Additional Activities: I have scheduled a Laser Mazes class at the Edgerton Center earlier this same day from 10:00 am -1:00 pm the same day as this class. You can sign up for that class here.
