The EECS Communication Lab hits a milestone
Recently the EECS Communication Lab hit a notable milestone: the center, which has been active since 2015, hosted its 2000th appointment.
Women’s Technology Program 2021: the sweet sound of success
The Women’s Technology Program (WTP), now in its 19th year, brings high school students with little to no engineering and computer science experience to Cambridge every summer for an immersive, four-week exploration of all things engineering. But in the summer of 2021, the unprecedented public health challenge of COVID forced the staff of the summer program to reimagine WTP—labs, hands-on classes, team-based projects, and all—as an exclusively online offering.
