It's Our Planet: What We Can Do To Make A Difference

Each IAP or summer members of the MIT community take the opportunity to travel and explore, learning things that can't easily be learned on campus. They do research, meet new friends in new cultures, help people in need, and learn about nature's vastness and beauty. Come meet them and be inspired!
