You GO Girl! - a program for girls entering 9th grade
  • Rising ninth grade girls in the 2018 You GO Girl! summer program
  • Girl soldering a pc board
  • Girls relaxing outside for lunch

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.
