During this program, we will be FLYING through a wide array of topics, subjects and places! Students will build autonomous and remote-controlled flying creatures, create short documentaries around flight, design better airports and robotic airplanes, make interactive toys that jump and fly, and create flight-inspired fashion.

In each Studio, students create their own projects and solutions to complex challenges through a process of critical problem solving. Students will be pushed out of their comfort zone, and will stretch their creative limits to come up with something they have never done before. They will be designing, programming and building robots, creating digital stories, designing and fabricating interactive flying elements, and inventing new toys. In every Studio, in a period of two weeks, students will go through the process of learning, conceptualizing, designing, making and continuously remaking their products and projects. They will work in collaborative teams under the guidance of our coaches, who are professional experts and academics at MIT and Harvard.

Intertwined in the Studios, students learn concepts within Math, Science, Computer Programming, Robotics, Digital Arts, Writing, Music and Film. Each two-week Studio culminates in a presentation and review of student projects, thereby developing students’ communication and public presentation skills. The Studios are inspired by cutting-edge research and inventions from MIT as well as the vibrant technology and design industries.
