  • After a successful start, the Edgerton Center is embarking on year two of a pilot project with the Gloucester Public Schools. The intent is to raise the interest of middle and high school students in science, technology, and engineering fields by sharing MIT’s passion for science. MIT’s hands-on project style engages young students in learning the complex content of science. Edgerton staff has been working with the staff and students of the Gloucester Public Schools to test methods and curriculum materials. Gloucester students have visited on field trips, and attended summer camps, and a number of teachers have also participated in professional development opportunities at MIT. Along the way, we hope to discover the best practices for working with distant school districts in such collaborations.
