MIT’s Office of Engineering Outreach Programs (OEOP)


So you can see how I actually
control the plasma is by using magnetic fields. So if you run a
current through a wire, it will generate
a magnetic field, and that’s one of the beautiful
things about electricity and magnetism. [MUSIC PLAYING] MITES is a summer program
for rising seniors. It’s here at MIT,
and basically, it’s for underserved minority
groups and trying to introduce them to STEM. But it’s also to put
these different students in a diverse environment. I did it my year, 2017. The biggest thing that
I took away from it was that confidence. For strong acids, this always– And I really wanted to come
back here and give back. Ever since I was in MITES
as a student, I was like, I’m going to come
back and be a TA. The classes that they’re
taking in college are spread over 15, 16 weeks. But they are just trying to
learn as much as they can within six weeks. And I always tell them
that it’s incredible how much you guys are learning. You came in not
knowing any of this, but they had midterms
last week, and when we’re turning back the exams,
I’m like, remember, guys? Three weeks ago, you
didn’t know any of this. You would have gotten a zero. So any improvement or anything
that you learn is amazing. I did MITES in 2015, and now
I’m back four years later to TA Physics 2. 1.26 times 10 to the negative 6. I’m from Lawrence,
Massachusetts, and MIT– they do outreach
there, and they try to get as many Lawrence kids
to come to this other program called SEED. Next thing, I’m at
MIT every Saturday. It’s how I found I was
interested in engineering. And then my junior year is when
they had MITES applications, and I decided to apply. Going to MITES and
meeting these TAs that were like me, in terms
of race, ethnicity, background, other
types of identities, gave me the confidence
to say, if they’re going to all these
amazing places, then what’s preventing me? [CHEERING] The students that
I had in 2017– I still talk to them,
still checking in on them because they just finished
their first year in college. Just being able
to encourage them and what they’re
interested in and what they want to do in life and
what they have the potential to do as well. It was a shock coming from
an underserved high school, inner city, where my classes
weren’t really challenging me, and then getting to Stanford. And MITES really
prepared me for that. [SINGING] We have so many of us that
come back, and a lot of us are asking ourselves why. Why do so many of us want
to come back and give back? And really, it’s because
MITES was our home, and just like kids
go back home, we also come back home to MITES. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  1. I'm from Russia and dream of joining MIT, but I can hardly do it. The students really look like a one big family, that's so good! 😀

  2. I want to reduce the gap between ideas and the realization of new the technologies. I would like to join the MIT because I want to Left behind the world better that I found it.

  3. Hi… MIT…!!, my name Muhammad Azmi Subarti I'm from vocational college Universitas Gadjah Mada – Indonesia and my major mechanical engineering, my opinion this video make's inspiring especially for me i really really likes video and I want enter to MIT college….😊😊😊😊❤❤👍👍

  4. how do I get so that I can enter MIT university, for example I study at UGM University

    how do I get a scholarship at UGM UNIVERSITY TO CONTINUE STUDY AT MIT UNIVERSITY. I WANT TO STRATELY 1 (BACHELOR) LECTURE AT UGM AND MASTER DEGREE AT MIT UNIVERSITY?

  5. If there is one place in the world that I can collaboratively work on my projects, it's MIT!!!!

    Edit: I Didn't Get in, but I can honestly say that MIT is quite liberal with the amount of knowledge that they provide to the community. Their Open Course Platform is quite literally a GODSEND.
    MIT is almost EVERYONE'S dream school (Including Mine), but I find it interesting when you ask other individuals why they would like to attend MIT; they often state vauge reasons and MIT admission officers can definitely tell. As a person also applying to this institution, I recommend that you really contemplate why this place is right for you and not why you are right for it. MIT is a phenomenal place where dreams are manifested into a reality. Not to deviate off course, but I remember talking to a few students at MIT when I was 13 and although I did bring up a few silly ideas, they found a way to actually make it seem plausible. The reason why they entertain silly 13-year-olds is that every single one of them is a silly 13-year-old at heart and they aren't able to comprehend the word "impossible". If you have that level of passion I PRAY that you find me or vice versa and become my best friend, or if we both get into MIT, we need to utilize their resources and build something revolutionary. WOAHHH! I digress. Anyways the way I look at it is that MIT really judges you on your level of passion and if you are passionate…..I hope I see you there. Good Luck!!!

  6. "Diverse" students aka anyone not a white male. Way to show MIT is racist. Keep your bigotry of low expectations out of the lab.

  7. What I am really interested in is mechatronics, aerospace, and electrical engineering. But I am not a minority, so I can’t use this wonderful program. It makes me happy to see that M.I.T. is helping out high school students though.👍

  8. It has now taken more than 10 fucking years, Dearies.

    BUT.

    You are all intellectually, and in all predictable Legal ways so Check Mate, my dear NSA GCHQ Mossad etc. Global Mass Surveillance -abusing religious conservatively dumb-supremacist religious frenetic Libertarian-Nazis "Geniuses" at @MIT , here in the religious fanatic NRA-Nazis-operated Ohio and beyond the U.S.A:

    "As with everything dodgy, the key to understanding this scandal is to follow the money. The media lab was an offshoot of MIT’s architecture school, founded in 1985 by Nicholas Negroponte, a man for whom the term “effortless superiority” could have been invented. At a stormy meeting of the lab’s members last week, he reportedly said that he prided himself on “knowing over 80% of the billionaires in the US on a first-name basis”, which is how he first got to know Epstein and had accepted donations from him many years ago.

    From the outset, the funding model of the lab was unusual. It rests on corporate sponsorship – about 70 companies pay an annual subscription that entitles them to share in the lab’s intellectual property without paying licence fees or royalties. (Its researchers generate about 20 new patents a year.) This arrangement gives the lab its annual operating budget of $75m (£61m) and its researchers the freedom to do whatever they want. It also generated its hallowed techno-utopian aura.

    Ito’s response to the crisis followed the tech industry template. First of all, profound and anguished apologies, followed by an admission that mistakes had been made and the declaration of a firm resolve to learn from them. He announced his intent to stay at the lab and begin a process of “restorative healing”, if you please.

    These laudable aspirations quickly evaporated when Farrow revealed the duplicity involved in concealing the extent of Epstein’s involvement in the lab, which left some of Ito’s academic colleagues, including Lawrence Lessig and Jonathan Zittrain, who had circulated a message of support, high and dry. As for those sentiments to do better in future, we have heard them before from the likes of Mark Zuckerberg.

    We shouldn’t be taken in by this cant. The ethical bankruptcy of the tech world rivals that of investment banking. “This story of looking-the-other-way morals,” wrote Kara Swisher in her New York Times column, “should not be seen as an unusual cautionary tale of a few rogue players. These corner-cutting ethics have too often become part and parcel to the way business is done in the top echelons of tech, allowing those who violate clear rules and flout decent behaviour to thrive and those who object to such behaviour to endure exhausting pushback.”As with everything dodgy, the key to understanding this scandal is to follow the money.

    Now. All you self-declared COGNITIVE SUPERIOR twits of U.S. Elite BS-Colleges-frat-boys from M.I.T to the amusingly fraudulent dumbing-down Christian Liberty "University" with all your utter violent imaginary White god-, guns-, opioids & Adderral addictions for your brains, now why was I and why am I still intellectually and Legally totally unmoved by your childish ploys for World DOMINION-power still withholding ALL my Intellectual Properties, MY brainchild away from you and your BS-Colleges-educated asinine pedophile Fascistic NRA AIPAC ALEC OPEC Nazi Tech-cartels again?

    I am just a dumb-fucking, unlike you asses not "elite"religiously educated, pot-smoking godless Social Liberal Monkey, YOU the supposedly god-given greatest genetically cognitive SUPERIOR White male Geniuses, so you tell me @MIT Geniuses before I throw all my past emails to and with you out to the Guardian, NYTimes and Washington Post and the EU Commission and laugh my godless Black Atheist ass off your impertinent stupidity and the large amount of monkey you colluding pricks will all easily loose alone to me. IF I then wanted to Legally destroy the American Academia along with the American religious extremism & religious cronyism in Politics, Education System and BIG Business.

    Godless Best, you Geniuses of pretentious Climate Change denying American Geniuses
    . You are Check Mate. I actually don't have to do a single thing. Just point to the past and past conversations, dear Abe's Kiddos. For you are all to me just in the Past.

    P.S.: MIT if you all really want to amuse me SPLENDIDLY, allow me to first publicly defeat that mentally ill [email protected] Search-Engines for Nazis-sabotaging UBER right-wing dim Asperger-billionaire-boy James Damore in his own metier of higher Intelligence, Chess, repeatedly so even, just to show all you asinine American ELITE "educated religious dipshits, that the oldest your most false assumptions of your own White" males' Cognitive Superiority, is as with everything with most of your half-delusional assemblies of dynasties of self-serving corrupted religious fundamentalism-selling pricks, just Schein/ Make-beliefs.
