High School Students

The MIT Office of Engineering Outreach offers three summer programs for high school juniors who excels in math and science.  Applications are due at the end of January. Additional online resources are available year round to all students through the MIT OpenCourseWare project's Highlights for Highschool site.

Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science (MITES)
This intense six-week program immerses students in life at MIT through math and science courses, a challenging hands-on elective course, and lab tours and social events.

Engineering Experience at MIT (E2@MIT)
In this one-week program, students take one of six intensive project-based courses, participate in admissions and financial aid sessions, and participate in lab tours and social events.

MIT Online Science, Technology, and Engineering Community (MOSTEC)
From July through January, students in this online program discuss research, receive admissions and financial aid advice, and attend webinars. They also complete online science and engineering projects that they present during a five-day conference on MIT’s campus. 

Highlights for Highschool (HFHS)
Highlights for High School, a companion website to MIT OpenCourseWare, provides open educational resources for high school educators and students. HFHS contains both materials created specifically for those in high school and resources collected from the MIT curriculum that can be used effectively by those in high school.  Resources cover not only science and mathematics, but also engineering, humanities, and social sciences. Students can:

  • Get help with homework
  • Study for an exam
  • Prepare for an Advanced Placement* exam
  • Start a fun project
  • Learn about MIT
