The physical intelligence initiative represents an innovative approach to physical education designed to make PE a more integral and vital part of MIT education. The core curriculum takes an experiential approach that leads to an understanding/appreciation for the intelligence of the human organism in motion.

In addition to making PE more relevant and engaging to students, interdisciplinary labs, research and design projects emphasize the application of physical intelligence to academic subjects—from physics, mechanical engineering, aero/astro, computer and cognitive science to communication and the arts—leading to a more complete integration of intellectual and physical experience.
