Highlight: Do you enjoy learning about new things either for intellectual nourishment or for fun? Then the MIT HSSP program has got you covered with their multi-weekend programs. For six weeks during the summer/spring, you get the chance to explore a variety of topics from “Crime Scene Chemistry” to “The Mathematics of Music” to “Politics for the Modern Era”. These multi-weekend programs can either be academic or non-academic based on your interests. The best part is, regardless of where you live, you can attend these multi-weekend programs online from the comfort of your computer screen. The lessons also happen only once a week, so you’ve always got plenty of time to prepare. These multi-weekend programs are offered for students from middle school all the way to grade 12. The options are limitless, so why not spend $40 to explore something(s) you always wanted to learn, but never could in school. Make a little room for yet another great program offering from MIT.
Financial: Entire program costs $40, regardless of the number of classes attended
