http://web.mit.edu/mites/Student.html Below is the link for the MIT Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science Program – a six week FREE residential program for high school juniors (you have to pay for transportation to/from MIT only). This is an outstanding program that gives students interested in STEM an opportunity to take college level courses and explore this field prior to college enrollment. The program is highly competitive and requires recommendations from teachers, so if interested, do not wait until the last minute. MITES 2013 will take place June 14 - July 27. The MITES 2013 application is due January 15, 2013. http://web.mit.edu/mites/Student.html
