Minority Introduction To Engineering and Science (MITES) students showcase summer projects at the Final Presentations Symposium

The 38th summer of the Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science (MITES) program came to a close with the Final Presentations Symposium on Friday, July 19. 79 rising high school seniors from 27 states and Puerto Rico participated in the six-week residential program and presented final projects in five fields: genomics, electronics, digital design, architecture, and engineering design.

During the program, participants took rigorous classes and participated in hands-on enrichment courses. Outside of the classroom, they visited MIT laboratories and engaged with MIT faculty and students, practicing scientists and engineers, and admissions officers. Since returning home, the students have begun the application process to top colleges and universities across the country.
