Outreach

The goal of our outreach initiative is to lower the activation barrier of student and faculty outreach to the Massachusetts community. Our program draws from the rich resources of labs and students in Aero/Astro to pull together materials from other outreach presentations, from faculty, and from current pictures and descriptions of cutting-edge technology and research.  This year’s events include participating in a “Women Take Flight” event at the New England Air Museum, sharing Aero/Astro women’s research with an audience of girl scouts and the public.  We will also conduct an IAP seminar (“Hands-On Aerospace”) with the dual purpose of introducing the MIT freshman class to Aero/Astro, and creating outreach materials that can be used for STEM education, including outreach through the MIT Splash/Spark programs.
