MIT is opening campus again to vaccinated visitors, with the understanding that additional steps will be taken for permissions and contact tracing.

Edgerton Outreach - Since 1996, our science and engineering field trips have provided primary and secondary school students with activities that cultivate curiosity and a sense of accomplishment in science and engineering.

How to participate

Our three-hour classes are available during the school day (which includes a 15-30 minute mid-point bio break). AT THIS TIME both virtual and on-campus sessions are available. (Not all content is available for virtual sessions, we are limited to Flashlight Building and Quizboards.)  Start times are determined through consensus with MIT and school instructors.  The program is available at no cost to public school classes, private school classes, homeschool groups, and community groups.
