Program Vitals
What: Learn anything at Cascade! At Cascade, you will take two hands-on, interactive classes every Saturday for six weeks. Classes are offered by MIT community members (undergraduates, graduates, or faculty) or members of nearby universities, and cover a wide range of topics. 

Cascade courses are also complemented by a personalized mentorship program, which will cover topics including college preparation and navigating high school!
When: Every Saturday, September 30th to November 4th from 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM. 
Who: We partner with greater Boston area schools and community centers to recruit underserved students (9th-12th graders). Cascade 2023 applications closed on Friday 9/22. Please note that Cascade is not open to students residing outside of Massachusetts.
Cost: Cascade is completely free for all students! Free lunch and transportation subsidies will be provided. 

Cascade meals are partially sponsored by the MIT COOP. We thank the COOP for their generous support.
