what we do
Four Weeks for America Challenge
Information — IAP 2013
The MIT Public Service Center and Teach For America have teamed up to offer MIT students an exciting challenge for IAP 2013. Spend your IAP solving problems that matter, learn about America’s education system, and make a difference for kids – all expenses paid*.
Ever wonder what it’s like to teach in a small, rural school? A big inner-city school? Want to inspire kids about science? Motivate them about math? Drive educational change? Have you wondered what Teach For America is like, and you don’t want to wait to find out?
Then apply to participate in the Four Weeks for America Challenge! Projects include helping a teacher figure out how to:
- Develop a math or science unit curriculum
- Perform data analysis on classroom performance
- Research tools to increase impact in the classroom
Interested? Challenged? Excited? We are too!

*The Small Print: The PSC will pay for your travel expenses, give you a food stipend, and help with materials expenses if they are needed. Teach For America will arrange for your work and your accommodations (which likely means sleeping on the couch or in the guest room of the teacher you are working with).
