E14-6: Harry contemplates anti-Voldemort tactics in the penthouse conference room of the New Media Lab.

Ravi Chandran ’14 speaks to a member of the MIT Corporation about the sayno petition. The protesters were giving copies of the petition to members of the Corporation as they arrived for their quarterly meeting. The sayno petition, signed by 1,836 undergraduates, protests the dining plan proposed by the House Dining Advisory Group (HDAG).

The corridor between Buildings 56 and 66 is closed until Feb. 21 in order to install a structure for the MIT 150 FAST Arts Festival. The festival, which celebrates the integration of art, science, and technology at MIT, kicked off with an exhibition of Stan VanDerBeek’s work from Feb. 3–5 and will culminate with the FAST Light event on MIT’s waterfront on May 7.

Course 20 — Building 16 — Niles Lab. The Niles lab uses biochemical methods to engineer tools for studying infectious diseases and model organisms. Niles’s current work focuses on malaria parasite biology and controlling RNA function.

Course 7 — Whitehead Institute — Weinberg Lab. The Weinberg lab investigates cancer stem cells and mechanisms of metastasis. Ras, the first human oncogene, was discovered by the Weinberg lab in 1979.

Course 3 — Building 8 — Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory. Students use the teaching laboratories to study biomaterials, chemical synthesis, and physical and electronic properties in 3.014 and 3.042.

Course 16 — Building 37 — Man Vehicle Lab. The MVL studies the cognitive and physiological limitations imposed by spaceflight. Dava J. Newman’s PhD ’92’s BioSuit spacesuit concept would give astronauts an unprecedented amount of mobility, yet still maintain the same level of pressure as conventional spacesuits.

Course 4 — Building 7 — Architecture Studio. Students take classes, work on projects, and sometimes sleep in the architecture studio.

Course 2 ­— Building 3 — Pappalardo Lab. The Pappalardo Lab is the Course 2 undergraduate teaching laboratory and is home to MIT’s primary machine shop. Many mechanical engineering classes, including 2.004 (Dynamics and Control II), 2.14 (Analysis and Design of Feedback Control Systems), and 2.671 (Measurement and Instrumentation) are held here.

Course 8 — Building 4 — Physics Junior Lab. In Junior Lab, students reproduce defining experiments from modern physics. J-Lab students verify the value of the elementary charge, determine the structure of the Milky Way, and replicate Rutherford’s gold foil experiment, among other projects.
