Applications will be posted online in early April 2019. EDW dates for 2019 will be: Monday, July 1st through Friday, August 2. Note there will be NO session on Thursday, July 4th or Friday, July 5th. Workshop hours are from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Please note, a student's presence and involvement each day is important as sessions involve work done in teams and would be affected by absences. We ask that students who apply to the program can commit to attending every day.
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.
