Medallion casting

Wed, 03/12/2014 - 14:22

Each year, DMSE gives its graduating students (grad and undergrads) a cast bronze medallion of the MIT seal. These medallions are entirely prepared, cast and finished by students in the DMSE Foundry (8-014) using the lost wax/investment casting process. All are welcome to help.

We'll start this process Friday, March 14, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in 8-014. We'll likely have at least one session per week until graduation, so if you can't make it this time, there will be plenty  
of other opportunities.

If you'd like to see a bit more about the medallion process, check out pages 8 and 9 here: http://issuu.com/mit-dmse/docs/structure_spring08

If you do come, please remember to wear closed-toe shoes, long pants, and clothes that you don't mind potentially ruining by getting covered in wax.
