Thank you everyone who submitted your gorgeous artwork for the 14th Annual Student OrigaMIT Competition! The submissions will be displayed for the entire month of April in the Wiesner Student Art Gallery on the second floor of the student center.
This year's competition was judged by a panel with incredible combined folding experience and longtime affiliation with the club. Learn more about the judges here.
Menger Sponge Construction!
We recently constructed one face of a Level 3 Menger Sponge as part of the MegaMenger project. This sculpture incorporates over 25,000 business cards and was built with the help of over 20 club members.
It is currently on display on the ground floor of the Stata Center. Check it out if you can!
Check out this amazing clip by MIT News covering the project:
MIT News Feature!
MIT News did a spotlight on us in 2013! Check out the video below for a beautiful introduction to the club and the origami we explore together every Sunday.
Thank you, MIT News!
Meetings and Workshops
This semester, our meetings will be held weekly on Sunday afternoons. Details for our next meeting can be found in the events section or on the calendar on the left. Anyone interested in origami is invited to attend (including members of the public unaffiliated with MIT) - and origami beginners are always welcome!
We do our best at OrigaMIT to provide the MIT community with high level Workshops and Lectures free of charge.
Much of our funding comes from the MIT Undergraduate Association, but this funding is only supposed to be used to
fund the activities of current MIT students, and generally not enough to cover the expenses related to events
open to the general public.
