LLRISE - Residential
Welcome to the Lincoln Laboratory Radar Introduction for Student Engineers (LLRISE) student application portal. LLRISE program is a summer workshop teaching students how to build small radar systems. This summer STEM program is a FREE two-week residential project-based enrichment program for outstanding students currently in their junior year in high school. Students in the LLRISE program gain an in-depth experience in building small radar systems. Participants are challenged to build a Doppler and range radar by using creative problem-solving strategies. This hands-on program allows students to work in a state-of-the-art laboratory with highly talented scientists and engineers. Instruction is provided at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, MA, by Laboratory technical staff and undergraduate and graduate students from MIT. The participants will reside in a MIT dormitory for the duration of the program. LLRISE will begin on July 14, 2019 and end on July 27, 2019.
This program is free and includes room and board. Students will provide their own transportation to and from the MIT main campus at the beginning and end of the program.
