START Program Details – As an MIT undergraduate, you will visit high schools in your area and share your knowledge of MIT and college life with high school students. Not sure what to say? No problem! We will provide you with a training session to walk you through the process. However, the main purpose of these talks is to inspire these high school students through your own experience.
