Global Teaching Labs attracts top students looking to share the Institute's unique approach to science and engineering education.

Through Global Teaching Labs, select MIT students are matched with foreign high school hosts throughout the country for three weeks in January. At each location the students prepare tailored courses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects that complement the school's curriculum and highlight MIT's hands-on approach to education.

Timeline for 2016

Applications for the January 2016 program are due October 4. Selected students will be invited to interview the following week, and final selection will be made by October 16.

Required training sessions

There will be approximately 5-6 training sessions that are mandatory for all GTL participants. Exact dates will be determined in early to mid-fall.
