MISTI Global Teaching Labs

Originally launched as the pilot program Highlights for High Schools, this experiential teaching program attracts top students looking to share MIT's unique approach to science and engineering education.
Select students are matched with foreign high school hosts throughout the country for three weeks in January. At each location students prepare tailored courses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects that complement the school's curriculum and highlight MIT's hands-on approach to education.

~No language requirement~

Emphasizing Mens et Manus

Students prepare for their experience through workshops on effective teaching and classroom techniques. During these sessions, students are strongly encouraged to introduce hands-on learning through group work and digital media. Students also attend sessions about country-specific politics, culture and society.


Currently MISTI Global Teaching Labs is offered in Germany, Israel, Italy, Mexico and Spain.
