Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Launch Blastoff Event
On Sunday, September 17th, 2017, twenty-one North Shore students from all grades met in North Shore's Beit Midrash to participate in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Launch Blastoff Event. The MIT Launch event interfaces selected high schools with MIT professors to bring engineering products to market. The emphasis is on projects that have a positive impact on the world. The theme for this year is Environmental Sustainability, Energy Production and Agriculture. During the event orchestrated and led by club founder and president Scott Soifer, students formed into four groups, brainstorming several different ideas and inventions.
They began the brainstorming process, and going forward, we will meet weekly (for the next few months) to further develop ideas into real life solutions. If students make it to the next round, they will come up with a business plan which they will present at MIT in front of a live audience. Good luck everyone! We can't wait to see what happens next! Stay tuned...
