Students entering grades 11 or 12 in the Fall of 2015 who are interested in exploring engineering, working collaboratively, and being creative are invited to apply.

Applications are due March 20, 2015, but will be evaluated in the order they are received.

Admission will be based on your personal statement and a teacher recommendation. We are looking for students who are interested in gaining a better understanding of engineering in general, and engineering at Thayer, in particular.

Preference will be given to students who have not attended a previous Design it! Build it! workshopi> since the main goal is to introduce high school students to engineering.
