Each summer, a cohort of students on MIT’s campus hurry out of dorms and off to classes. Excited. They’re not the incoming first-year class, but students enrolled in the Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science (MITES), a six-week enrichment program run by the MIT Office of Engineering Outreach Programs (OEOP). With a mission of empowering middle and high school students from diverse backgrounds to become future scientists and engineers, OEOP has offered programing like MITES for more than 40 years.
