What You'll Be Doing

The goal of the SEAS Summer Immersion Program is to involve high school women in different disciplines of engineering and computer science. We do that through:

  • Daily projects in engineering and computer science
  • Creative time with makerspace tools
  • A team challenge - make progress every day on a fun project that practices what you learn
  • Mealtime conversations with professional engineers and computer scientists - networking and mentoring!
  • Tours and activities in professional engineering/computer science facilities
Program activities take place between 9:00 am and 9:00 pm for the 3 full days of the program. These include a variety of hands-on project workshops, on-campus and off-site tours, guest speakers and group discussions. Throughout the program you will have daily opportunities to participate in other co-curricular events, free time and residential living activities until curfew.
