The WTP in ME is a four-week residential summer program in the MIT Dept. of Mechanical Engineering to introduce high school girls to the basic principles and ideas of mechanical engineering in the summer after 11th grade. It was created in the summer of 2006 and modeled after the WTP in EECS. Classes taught by female graduate students in the MIT ME department provide an in-depth study of many of the subject areas used by mechanical engineers, such as fluid mechanics, materials, statics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, and engineering design. Hands-on work is combined with analytical calculations and the use of read more

LIFE AT RSIStudents begin their summer with one week of seminars highlighting current research topics in biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, physics, and humanities. RSI students gain access to the extensive computing resources of MIT, and receive the tools they will need to find current publications, to model complex systems, to prepare a scientific paper, and to make a conference-style presentation. The RSI evening lecture series begins the first week and continues throughout the summer and provides students with the ability to meet face-to-face with science and technology leaders such as Nobel laureates and technology entrepreneurs. Students receive their preliminary assignments read more
