In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, MIT Lincoln Laboratory will suspend all summer K-12 outreach programs. This includes Lincoln Laboratory Radar Introduction for Student Engineers (LLRISE), LLCipher, and all other scheduled programming. We are following MIT’s policy on K-12 Summer programming. In light of this announcement, Lincoln Laboratory is exploring ways in which we can modify the teaching of these courses in a virtual environment. We will keep you informed on the potential of this approach in the coming months.
If you are interested in being consider for a virtual LLRISE and LLCipher please continue to complete your application. The LLRISE student application portal will remain open till April 3, 2020, 8 PM EST and LLCipher will remain the same. Teacher recommendation portal will no longer have deadline for both programs.
Thank you for your continued interest in Lincoln Laboratory’s STEM programs.
MIT Lincoln Laboratory conducts research and development aimed at solutions to problems critical to national security. Two of the Laboratory's principal technical objectives are (1) the development of components and systems for experiments, engineering measurements, and tests under field operating conditions and (2) the dissemination of information to the government, academia, and industry.
Community Outreach and education programs are an important component of the Laboratory's mission. From the beginning, our outreach initiatives have been inspired by employee desires to help people in need and to motivate student interest and participation in science, technology, engineering, and Math (STEM).
