Background information on MIT Beaver Works Summer Institute program is
given below and in the attachments. We would love to see even greater
participation from local high school students, especially from
underrepresented and underserved communities. Please feel free to forward
Director, MIT Beaver Works
MIT Beaver Works Summer Institute is an exciting new Beaver Works (
https://beaverworks.ll.mit.edu/CMS/bw/) initiative focused on high school
students. We had our first Beaver Works Summer Institute program last
summer and it was huge success (4-week residential program at MIT, no-cost
to students, 46 students from 24 high schools, 24 from out of state and 22
from Boston area as daytime students).
For this year we expanded the program to 3 projects (Autonomous RACECAR,
Autonomous UAV racing and Autonomous Cognitive Assistant) with
corresponding 3 online courses as prerequisites. We had over 350 students
signed up for the online courses and we have admitted 98 students (35
students from 17 MA high schools and 63 students from 32 out-of-state high
schools) for the summer program. In addition, we had two teams (12
students) from Mexico participate in the final RACECAR race (August 6,
2017) at MIT through MIT MISTI-Mexico Program (http://misti.mit.edu/mit-mexi
co) and two teams (8 students) from Nauset High School (Cape Cod, MA) in
the final competition for the RACECAR. Final Challenge and Awards Ceremony
was on August 6th at MIT campus – you can check out videos on our YouTube
For next year we plan to expand the program to ~8-9 projects: Autonomous
RACECAR, Autonomous UAV, Cognitive Assistant, Hacking a 3D Printer, AI for
Medical Challenge, Fake News Hackathon, Embedded System Cyber
Capture-the-Flag, CubeSat, and UAV SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar). (See
attached BWSI 2018 brochure.)
