For Parents, should I get my child involved?

  • Our programs are run by MIT students that are passionate enough about STEM outreach to volunteer their skills, time, and energy
  • We believe that learning should be fun and never boring
  • MIT provides us with amazing connections to see world class research and meet inspiring students, professors, and alumni
  • STEM occupations are projected to grow by 17.0 percent from 2008 to 2018, compared to 9.8 percent growth for non-STEM occupations and workers command 26% higher wages than non-STEM peers (US Dept. of Commerce, STEM: Good Jobs Now and For Future, 2011)
  • It's free!
