The Saturday Engineering Enrichment and Discovery (SEED) Academy is an academic enrichment and career exploration program for public high school students from Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our primary mission is to increase the number of traditionally underserved local students in the pipeline to the technical workforce. We provide participants with an interesting, hands-on curriculum that strengthens their foundational math, science and communication skills; a challenging learning environment with high expectations; and access to positive role models.
Over the course of seven-semesters, SEED Academy students have the opportunity to see what engineering and technology are, how they are being used in our society, and what industry and educational leaders expect in those fields in the future.
With exposure to compelling content and world-class resources at MIT, we are preparing students for academic and professional careers in the technical fields. The program is offered free of charge to participants through the generous support of our sponsors and MIT.
