Highlights for High School

Summer is proving to be a busy time for the Highlights for High School team! We will be collecting and adding new content to the website over the coming months. We have lots of exciting new courses to add, including almost a dozen from the Educational Studies Program, courses taught by MIT students especially for high school students. Topics include probability, modern physics, and cognitive neuroscience to name just a few. We are also looking forward to capturing the summer outreach program run by the Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research at MIT. We encourage you to check back later in the summer to see whats new!

In the meantime, we know many of you are probably out of school for the summer and have extra time on your hands, so we recommend checking out the fun Competitions section on the Highlights site. See materials from several MIT competitions including Robotic Programming and Design and Manufacturing.

MIT OpenCourseWare user."The lectures are actually fun watching. (I've even seen most of them twice!) These lectures gave me a deeper understanding of the subject, and I'm pretty sure that if it wasn't for these OCW lectures, I would not have received my "A" in my local algorithms course." - Oystein, Norway
