February 3, 2020 – The MIT Beaver Works Summer Institute (BWSI) Online Educational Program ( FREE Summer Program )
MIT Beaver Works Summer Institute (https://beaverworks.ll.mit.edu/CMS/bw/bwsi) is a rigorous, world-class STEM program for talented and passionate high school students. The four-week summer program at MIT teaches STEM skills through project-based, workshop-style courses. BWSI program started in 2016 and it was a huge success (4-week residential program at MIT, no-cost to students, 46 students from 24 high schools, 24 from out-of-state and 22 from Boston area as daytime students). The program was expanded in 2017 to 3 projects (Autonomous RACECAR, Autonomous UAV Racing and Autonomous Cognitive Assistant) with corresponding 3 online courses as prerequisites. Over 350 students signed up for the online courses and 98 students participated in the summer program (35 students from 17 MA high schools and 63 students from 32 out-of-state high schools). In addition, two teams from Mexico (12 students) and two teams from Nauset High School, Cape Cod, MA, (8 students) participated in the final competition for the RACECAR. Last year the program was expanded to 8 projects with the following 5 additional projects: Hack a 3D Printer, Data Science for Health and Medicine, Embedded Security and Hardware Hacking, Build a CubeSat, and UAS SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar). For the summer program 198 students from 105 high schools around the country (from 31 states) participated. In addition, teams from Mexico (15 students), Canada (4 students) and Nauset High School (4 students) also participated in the program.
For BWSI 2019 the following 2 projects were added: Remote Sensing for Crisis Response and Design of Assistive Technology. For the summer program 239 students from 129 high schools around the country (from 27 states) and teams from Mexico (20 students) and Nauset High School (5 students) participated. We also ran a pilot middle school program, Autonomous mini-RACECAR Grand Prix (24 students from 13 middle schools in the Boston area) which was a huge success. We plan to expand the middle school program this year.

January 31, 2020 – LGBTQ+ Support Group
On behalf of Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC), we are reaching out to ask that you help us spread the word to your students, faculty, coaches and advisors about volunteer opportunities they are invited to participate in. These opportunities will count toward students’ community service hours during 2020 and will serve as great resume boosters for future job and college applications. Students will receive a signed certificate for their volunteer hours from MBCC.
MBCC’s statewide Against the Tide events will be held on Saturday, June 20th at Hopkinton State Park and on Saturday, August 15th in Brewster at Nickerson State Park. These inspiring events are great ways for students to become active members of their community and support a cause that impacts many Massachusetts families.
Opportunities to volunteer include the following:
- Volunteer for Against the Tide the day before, the day of, or both. Volunteer opportunities include:
- Assisting with event set-up and/or take down
- Participating as a walk guide, run guide, swim guide, or paddle board guide
- Helping hand out water to event participants
- And more!
- Volunteer long-term to help promote Against the Tide events by joining a combined junior high, high school, and college student committee promoting MBCC’s annual, statewide Against the Tide multisport event. This opportunity will only require roughly 3 hours of students’ time each month and has multiple components they can take part in:
- Adopting a town near where they live and posting Against the Tide posters throughout the months leading up to the event
- Assist with social media marketing
- Helping with event outreach and volunteer recruitment
- Committee members are required to volunteer at a minimum of one Against the Tide event (Hopkinton 6/20/20 or Brewster 8/15/20)
MBCC is dedicated to preventing environmental causes of breast cancer through community education, research advocacy, and public policy changes. Students’ support as active volunteers and/or committee members will help change the impact of breast cancer on generations to come.
Students interested in volunteering and/or becoming a committee member, should email MBCC’s Executive Director, Cheryl Osimo, at [email protected] and college committee chair, Charles McGinn, at [email protected].

Health Professions Recruitment & Exposure Program (HPREP) at Harvard Medical School is an outreach program hosted and organized by Harvard graduate, medical, and public health students. Their mission is to recruit high school students from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds into science, medicine, and public health with the goal of eliminating educational disparities and increasing representation of underrepresented and disadvantaged groups in science and health professions.
Students are encouraged to apply for the HPREP 2019-2020 program, especially those who come from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds. Students should not feel that they must be at the top of their class to be competitive for our program. More importantly, they seek students who, despite having experienced challenges in their lives, have a sense of scientific curiosity and the drive to reach their goals. The application portal is open from Monday, Aug 26th to Monday, Sept 30th, 2019 11:59 PM. No transcript or letter of recommendation is required. Students are reminded to submit all application materials by the deadline. Incomplete or late applications will not be reviewed.
Since its inception, HPREP at Harvard Medical School has provided opportunities for high school students every year. The program continues to thrive and grow because of the participation of your students and your commitment.
HPREP is a free 10-week program that takes place at Harvard Medical School (Boston location) on Saturdays (9:00 AM – 4:00 PM) from November to February. The curriculum consists of interactive lectures and laboratory components, exposing students to a range of science and health-related subjects, including genetics, scientific method and experiments, vaccines, cancer biology, anatomy, sexual health, nutrition, health disparities, leadership, ethics, and college prep workshops. HPREP also provides students with one-on-one mentoring to equip them with the excitement, knowledge, skills, confidence, and community support necessary to pursue education and careers in science and health professions. The mentoring component pairs each student with a Harvard student (doctoral, masters, medical, or postdoctoral fellow), who works closely with them on applying to college, scholarship applications, and to develop a research project leading to an oral presentation at our closing ceremony. For more information, please visit https://hprep.wordpress.com/.
