News from the Center

Seeker Media called us up in the fall with a proposal: a film on Doc Edgerton. It's been a long time since I've had as much fun in Strobe Lab as I did on the one-day video shoot. Watch it here: How High-Speed Photography Unlocked the Mechanics of Motion.
As part of our mission to enhance K-12 STEM education, we co-hosted a screening of the film, Science Fair. Afterwards, a panel of MIT students who participated in ISEF described how it changed their lives. In other news: three questions for MIT Motorsports alumna Kelly O'Brien, high school students build big ideascrossing the Oregon Trail in a solar car, and two new teams.
