The MIT Beaver Works Summer Institute is a rigorous, world-class STEM program for talented rising high-school seniors. Please Note: At the present time, the BWSI Summer Program is limited to US citizens and international students attending US High Schools with valid Visa.
Once registered on bwsix.edly.io you have access to ALL the courses listed on courses page. You can try them all, but you must make progress on the course you select on your application form that you will get in March.
Enrollment is competitive and you may not get your first choice. If accepted into the program, you will be placed into one (1) course and will need to complete the online portion for that course.
We will not be running an in-person program in 2022, your safety is most important. For future In-Person programs see below.
