The MIT Club of Boston K12 initiative seeks to engage the local population of over 17,000 MIT Alumni in the challenges of K12 education. We consider ourselves to be an "Alumni Booster Club” supporting and recognizing achievements by students, teachers and mentors.
Our goal is nothing less than to shape the future by fostering a culture that values education and celebrates academic achievements. Our programs are establishing connections across like-minded members of our alumni community, and tapping into that community as a source of support for a variety of K12 programs. Our efforts in the Boston area are also intended to serve as a model that can be duplicated globally across the network of MIT Alumni around the world.
Important components of K12 Initiative include support for
- The Science and Engineering Program for Teachers (SEPT) at MIT - A summer program that brings science teachers to MIT to showcase the latest developments in science and engineering
- The Mind and Hand Alliance at MIT's Edgerton Center - a group of K-12 educational organizations with the purpose of inspiring student interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
- FIRST and the FIRST Robotics Competition
- The Science Trivia Contest at the Cambridge Science Festival
- The presentation of the Boston Area Inspirational Teacher Awards at the Club of Boston Annual Meeting
