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

The Tenth Annual OrigaMIT Convention registration is now open!


    Mark your calendars! This year's 2022 OrigaMIT Convention will be held on Saturday, November 5th, 2022 on MIT's campus. Register here!

    Weekly Meeting

    Our Sunday meetings are always open and free of charge to everyone, whether or not you are a MIT affiliate. Folders of any experience level are welcome!

    After having discontinued in-person meetings for the past two years due to COVID, we are back and better than ever! We meet most weeks on Sundays from 3-5PM in room W20-491, in the student center. Please subscribe to our mailing list to receive more information about our weekly meetings.

    Flight of the Banana Turtle - Banana Lounge Installation

    We made an installation for the Banana Lounge with four flying turtles designed by Andy! Find more information about this project here. We also taught the flying turtle as a class over IAP 2022. The class was mentioned in an article about the Edgerton Center.

    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!

    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.
