Edgerton Educational Foundation
Designed to inspire those who visit, the Edgerton Explorit Center includes exhibits that encourage hands-on interaction and discovery, reflecting Harold ‘Doc’ Edgerton’s great belief in stimulating the learning process; and serves as a lasting tribute to the world-renowned scientist and inventor. NMA provided design services for accessibility upgrades to the lower level and the NMA principals designed the original facility while with the firm of Kirkham Michael. The Center is connected to the adjacent Plainsman Museum by a re-creation of the MIT Strobe Alley where Edgerton’s work was displayed. The 11,000 square foot facility includes a lecture hall, classrooms, large activity and exhibit areas, shop space, and a rotunda gallery.
