Three greater Boston-area school teachers and five community college students will work in MIT faculty-led research groups this summer through the MIT Materials Research Laboratory and its Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) program.

For summer 2019 there are two Boston high school teachers: Allyson Grasso, who teaches environmental science at the Match Charter Public High School; and Camilia Chodkowski, who teaches chemistry and environmental science at the Dearborn STEM Academy.

The third teacher, Wendy Moy, teaches physical science at the Diamond Middle School in Lexington, Massachusetts. Moy spent summer 2018 in the research group of assistant professor of physics Riccardo Comin. She will return to the Comin lab this summer on a part-time basis to develop classroom material for teaching her middle school students about her MIT lab experience.
