For our 2022 Science and Engnieering Program for Teachers, we will be inviting our selected 2020 cohort for an on campus event, as long as MIT's covid policies allow. If you have any questions about the program please reach out to sept@mit.edu

More information about our program:

For one week each summer, teachers from around the world are meeting each other at MIT for the annual Science and Engineering Program for Teachers (SEPT)! Due to campus restrctions durng the Global Pandemic, we invited our 2020 and 2021 cohorts for a first-rate virutal event.

Since 1989, over 2,000 middle and high school teachers have been selected to participate in SEPT - all recognized as innovative, creative, and dedicated leaders in their schools and communities.  Each year, SEPT teachers attend lectures from top scientists, try out the latest technology developed on campus, and talk shop with an outstanding group of passionate educators - professors, students, researchers, and teachers at sessions together all week long!

Check out these pages with materials from the presentations, tours, and hands-on workshops that took place at SEPT 2019.
