Women’s Technology Program @ MIT(Non-US Citizens eligible)In case you know someone who could benefit from this…

Please note that students from other countries are encouraged to apply.
However, all application forms, transcipts, and letters of recommendation must be submitted in English. Standardized test scores (SAT, ACT, SAT II, or AP exams) are especially important for non-US applicants, so we can better assess your curriculum background.

Women’s Technology Program at MIT is a 4-week summer residence program to introduce high school girls to electrical engineering and computer science. If you know a girl who is currently a high school junior with demonstrated math and science ability and an interest in finding out about EECS, please encourage her to visit our website for more information and for an application form (applications are due February 1, 2005): http://wtp.mit.edu

Our classes are taught in a supportive environment by a staff of women MIT PhD candidates and undergraduates. The full-time academic program includes hands-on experiments and team-based projects in computer science, electrical engineering, and mathematics.

Our goals are to:
* increase girls’ interest and confidence in pursuing computer science and engineering and
* make them aware of their potential for success in these fields

Participants are selected from a nationwide applicant pool of girls who attend the program in the summer between their junior and senior year in high school. No prior experience in computer programming, physics, or electrical engineering is expected, but applicants typically have strong academic records, especially in math and science.

Thank you for your help in communicating information about this
opportunity to girls across the country!
