ABOUT SEED ACADEMY

Since the program’s launch in 2003, we have engaged youth from diverse backgrounds in the joy and excitement of discovery, making, and project-based learning. SEED Academy scholars are competitively selected and academically promising middle and high school students from public schools in Boston, Cambridge, and Lawrence, MA. Most are also from backgrounds underrepresented in science and engineering. In addition, all 100+ SEED families and scholars are deeply committed to our multi-year program and they are very eager to be in a community with others who love STEM and love to learn.


ABOUT MOSTEC

Since 2011, the MIT OEOP has provided over 1,500 scholars with a transformative and life-changing experience through our MOSTEC program. MOSTEC provides a meaningful and fun experience for rising high school seniors, where they learn about new and cutting-edge technologies in science and engineering, build a strong community of friends and mentors from across the globe, and receive support and coaching in the college application process, all at no cost. To learn more about MOSTEC, please view the MOSTEC 10 year anniversary video!


ABOUT MITES

Since 1975, the MIT OEOP has provided a transformative and life-changing experience through the MITES program. MITES is a six-week in-person program on MIT's campus where students engage with peers from across the country who are dedicated and motivated to pursue STEM. During the program, students take five courses, receive admissions and financial aid advice, meet with a small group of peers to receive mentorship from a current undergraduate student. The end of the program culminates in a Final Symposium where students present their hands-on projects to the broader MIT community.
