On the first day of fall class registration, a Barbie-themed TARDIS, the time-traveling spaceship from Doctor Who, appeared in the president’s office, courtesy of incoming first-years in Interphase EDGE/x, a scholar enrichment program run by the Office of Minority Education. Inside the “Barbis,” President Kornbluth found a web of mirrors and lights representing infinite space travel.
Barbis was constructed over the summer during an eight-week Interphase EDGE/x course at the MIT Edgerton Center. In the class, students form project teams and envision and complete a project, gaining hands-on engineering skills as they get to know other first-years. Read more about the Barbis project here.
