Supporting the Hobby Shop

For seventy years, the Hobby Shop has been a vital part of education at MIT. Today, the Shop provides every student with the opportunity to invent, design, and build, getting the hands-on experience that is so important for the success of future engineers, scientists, and architects. We are proud to continue this tradition and ask for your support as we look to the future.
Today’s MIT students also understand the value of working with their hands, taking something from an idea to a tangible product and experiencing the evolutionary design process. To continue to improve this shop experience and provide new equipment and expand class offerings, we rely on contributions from alumni and friends of the Hobby Shop.
To continue the rich heritage of the Hobby Shop into the twenty-first century and to enhance the Shop experience for today’s students, we need your support. Every gift to the Hobby Shop helps us continue this tradition of hands-on learning—Mens et Manus. Please join us in designating the Hobby Shop (Fund #2669500) with your gift to MIT.
