Check this project out - 3D print an articulated character or thing, then animate it with the motion of a clothespin. Want more? Let's add an LED circuit and see it light up when it moves. We’ll explain the 3D design techniques, show the mechanical assembly, and go through the electric circuit.

We invite you to join us in a series of virtual conversations on compassionate systems change in education launching on January 13, 2022, hosted by MIT Open Learning, MIT Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab, and MIT Comparative Media Studies / Writing.

Light up your classroom with laser-cut edge-lit acrylic art! We’ve created a simple design that makes a good starter project and is easy to customize.

Over the past several months, MIT has conducted a series of surveys to determine the level of collaboration between community colleges and the manufacturing industry. From those surveys, the research team has prepared a report on what is being taught, how educators and employers are engaging, and how they can improve their alignment.

We believe that education can be a leading sector in helping shape the cultural changes needed throughout society and that education innovators around the world are busy doing just that. This new conversation series will bring researchers, educators and practitioners together to explore work in student and educator wellbeing, classroom practice, and collaborative leadership at the district, region, state and international levels. Discussions will focus on the most pressing issues of our time, from climate change and equity to declining mental health and well-being.
