Developing the Pipeline to STEM Careers
The Center for E3S collaborated with MIT’s Office of Engineering Outreach Programs (OEOP) to promote high-school students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. In particular, the Center supported electronics education for high-school students of diverse backgrounds, in order to seed a pipeline for a future generation of scientists, engineers, and technicians that will reflect the diversity of the US society.
MIT Online Science, Technology, and Engineering Community (MOSTEC)
The MIT Online Science, Technology, and Engineering Community (MOSTEC) was an online education and enrichment program that extends from the summer into the winter as high-school students submit their college applications. Students completed online coursework and projects in science, engineering, and technical writing. They also received mentoring, college admissions help, and interacted with a network of highly talented high school seniors from across the country as well as MOSTEC staff. Furthermore, MOSTEC students were invited to attend an exclusive conference at MIT where they were able to explore MIT’s campus firsthand and interacted face-to-face with MIT faculty. MOSTEC served to develop a cohort of students equipped to major successfully in technical disciplines. Learn more >
