More information about our program:

For one week this summer, teachers from around the world are meeting each other at MIT for the 31st annual Science and Engineering Program for Teachers (SEPT)!

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.

SEPT Class of 2019. Thank you for a great week!

This year, over 50 teachers from across the United States, Spain, South Africa, Germany, Grand Cayman, Brazil and Argentina arrived on MIT’s campus in early July to participate in the 30th Anniversary of our annual week-long Science and Engineering Program for Teachers (SEPT). 15 MIT professors from a variety of disciplines gave interesting and insightful talks about their work and provided the teachers with powerful learning experiences.
