iFp Saturdays 

There is a tremendous amount of youth-centered innovation related activities occurring each weekend in Boston / Cambridge that far too many youth are not taking advantage of.  These youth will remain under-represented in the growth economy until they are exposed to opportunities and challenged to pursue them. iFp Saturdays was designed to help remedy this situation.  

Hosted at MIT over 15 Saturdays from October to May, iFp Saturdays serves as an introduction to iFp’s skills and mindsets development. Students participate in design and engineering challenges often in collaboration with various MIT staff, alumni or students. (Ages 13-18)
