GE Girls at MIT

Coronavirus Update - MIT administration has posted a notice that there are to be no in-person programs (either on- or off-campus) with the K-12 community.

We at GE Girls @ MIT are disappointed but support these measures from our MIT administration.  


For rising seventh-grade girls from Lynn Public Schools.

These students spend a week in the summer at the Edgerton Center soldering electrical connections, designing sailboats, constructing LEGO cars and tracking infectious zombie plagues, plus spend a day on-site at our neaby GE Aviation facility. The program, funded by General Electric and developed by members of the GE Women’s Network, the MIT Edgerton Center, with help from the Lemelson-MIT Program, aims to interest girls in science and technology and ultimately increase the number of female engineers. (Applicants limited to residents of Lynn, MA)
