What is a high schooler to do in the middle of winter in New England? They can spend the weekend attending Blueprint, a free high school hackathon being held Feb 17 & 18th at MIT. On Saturday, students get to participate in hands-on workshops on programming and iOS development taught by MIT students and others in the industry. On Sunday, they get to work in a team to build a project from scratch with support from mentors (my son participated last year and said their mentors were very helpful in answering questions).
Guest Speaker: Andrew Sutherland, the founder and CTO of Quizlet; featured twice in Forbes Magizine's 30 under 30 list for Education
A free t-shirt and meals are provided.

Welcome! I'm Debbi and I'm so glad you're here! As a mom of two boys I found it difficult to find resources on STEM programs for my kids. I spent hours researching which resulted in my kids having some amazing STEM opportunities. I want to share information with other families. I try to focus on free or low-cost events so that opportunities are available to children no matter their family's income level.
