Our four-day summer program is an on-campus introductory science and engineering program for girls entering ninth grade in the fall. The camp provides an introductory sampling of hands-on science and engineering activities mixed with high school preparatory sessions. Girls build motorized LEGO® cars, experiment with strobe-light photography, “breed” LEGO fish cells to understand the relationships between genes and traits, and more. Any girl who can commute to our program on the MIT campus is eligible to attend, though preference is given to applicants from the greater Boston area. There is a suggested materials donation of $50.00.
The program runs from 8:30am- 2:30pm. Families are expected to be responsible for transportation to and from the MIT campus. Time is set aside each day for a brown bag lunch break.
Dates have not yet been determined for our 2018 session, though we plan to offer our program. We apologize for the delay, but our program is in a shared space with other as-yet-scheduled summer programs. Fingers crossed that dates will be determined by February 1. Applications will be available by late March, early April.
