You GO Girl! - a program for girls entering 9th grade

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 You GO Girl! are disappointed but support these measures from our MIT administration.  


Do you like science, but maybe your grades don't always reflect it? Our four-day summer program is an on-campus, low-pressure science and engineering program for girls entering ninth grade in the fall. (We are NOT residential, so local students only, please!)


The program 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” with LEGO fish cells to understand the relationships between genes and traits, and more. Any girl from the greater Boston area who can commute to our program on the MIT campus is eligible to attend

There is a suggested materials donation of $100.00.

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.
