In consultation with the K-12 programs here, MIT has made the decision to cancel all in-person K-12 programs for the summer, this includes the Beaver Works Summer Institute. We have already started to plan and adapt courses so that they could be run virtually and still provide a unique experience without the potential hazard of being together in large groups. We urge you to continue with the online courses as they are still a relevant educational opportunity.
Serious Game Development, Remote Sensing for Disaster Response, Autonomous RACECAR Grand Prix, Autonomous Cognitive Assistant (Cog*Works), Medlytics, Build-a-CubeSat, and Embedded Security w/ Hardware Hacking have agreed to virtualize. We are exicited to be adapting RACECAR and CubeSat for virtual courses that will include loaning hardware for students to work with.
This is very difficult for all of us and we are working hard to both keep staff and students safe and provide an exceptional education experience for you.
The BWSI enrollment applications are open and have a due date of April 30. Enrollment decisions will be made by May 15.
Please ignore March 31 deadlines for courses and applications, they are being extended in this very unique time.
Enrollment for the virtual courses will require a teacher recommendation. The link you have from the application will be the link for them to use. You can have a teacher send in the recommendation anytime.
