Since 1975, our programs have provided enriching science and engineering experiences to over 3,000 middle and high school students free of charge.
In 2014, we served around 500 diverse and talented students. 60 to 70 percent of our students come from low socio-economic backgrounds. 70 to 80 percent of our students are underrepresented minorities.
Through our three national programs, we serve students from all across the country. Through our local program, we serve students from Boston, Cambridge and Lawrence public schools.
Our students leave our programs with heightened confidence in their skills, knowledge and abilities in science and engineering. Many go on to become leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs.
Making science and engineering careers accessible to all.
To diversify the science and engineering community by serving students from underrepresented and underserved backgrounds and empowering these students to develop the skills and confidence needed to pursue careers in technical fields.
A truly impactful experience can change a student’s entire life.
The skills needed to succeed in science and engineering fields are a strong foundation for success in all professions and life in the 21st century.
Solving the world’s problems requires contributions of people from all walks of life, areas of expertise and perspectives. As a unit in the MIT School of Engineering, we share its committment to diversity and equity.
Society needs a diverse, expanding body of scientists and engineers to develop innovative solutions.
A positive, educational environment committed to building strong relationships is critical for our students’ success.
