Welcome to OrigaMIT, MIT's origami club, which exists to promote, practice, and teach origami folding, analysis, and design.

No meeting this week

There will be no Sunday meeting this week as the club will be busy holding events for Campus Preview Weekend. Stay posted for details for our next meeting, which will be on Sunday, Apr 26, 2015.

14th Annual Student OrigaMIT Competition - Exhibit Gallery!

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.

Here are the results of the competition. Congratulations to all award-winners!

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!

Support Us!

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.

If you enjoy our events and would like to support OrigaMIT through a donation, you can do so online through MIT Give, or by sending a check made out to OrigaMIT - MIT to:
