Applications to EDW are now closed. However feel free to add yourself to the wait list above.
EDW will be held in the MIT D-Lab space, MIT Building N51, 3rd Floor.
For rising 9th through 12th graders
Students in this hands-on, self-motivated summer program will work in small teams to design, build, and test projects that blend engineering, art, and science. Students will have the opportunity to use many of the same tools and materials as MIT students and engineers.
The workshop builds on students’ math, science, and artistic abilities and will use basic principles of engineering, problem solving, and design. Short lessons on interesting topics will add to the project-based experience. While at MIT, students will also have opportunities to see many examples of engineering, art, and science at work. Past projects have included a modified Razor scooter, a giant tower of speakers, remote-controlled flying objects, and an electric cello.
Note that this is a non-residential program.
