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!)
Our 2019 program dates will be August 5 - August 8, Monday - Thursday.
Applications will be posted in early April, at this URL.
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” 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 $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.
Sample schedule from 2018 Calendar2018full. Please note, we will likely see changes as we work out our timing.
