Michigan Introduction to Technology & Engineering (MITE)


The MITE program is designed to excite, engage, educate and empower students currently in the 9th and 10th grade with an integrated curriculum that centers on an engineering based project. The program takes place in July and August and has approximately forty student participants. The students attended four key academic support classes: Technical Communications, Engineering Math, Professional Development, and Engineering Concepts, which are designed to support the project on which the students are focused while working in partnership with their in-school experience of those subject areas. These students also participate in workshops on entrepreneurship, cultural engagement, preparing for college alongside activities outside of the classroom, including guided tours of the college and university facilities and outdoor recreation activities.
