Learn By Doing

The MIT Hobby Shop is a fully-equipped wood and metal shop that teaches students the art of thoughtful design and craft.


The Hobby Shop has fostered MIT’s spirit of learning by doing for over 80 years by providing tools, training, and assistance to all MIT students, faculty, staff, and alums interested in turning their ideas into reality.
