The deadline for the 2021 SEPT applications has passed.

Please keep an eye on the website for announcements. 

SEPT 2021 is scheduled for the week of  June 28th- July 1st. Program details will be communicated with 2021 attendees via email.

In 2021, we will accept up to 40 outstanding educators from secondary schools worldwide who teach science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM) subjects. We invite them virtually from schools around the world where they are recognized as innovative, creative, and dedicated leaders in their communities. Would you, or a teacher you know, be a good fit for SEPT?  In the past, the teachers who have made the most of their week at MIT are known to:

  • Integrate technology in their classrooms - particularly technology that enables students to create; and,

  • Demonstrate innovation in their teaching practice, and advancement through past professional development or other extracurricular experiences.

*The date to submit applications has passed*
