MIT+K12 Videos is an educational media program that seeks to spark curiosity and a love of learning among kids and kids-at-heart. We produce original digital media and live programming to promote STEM-literacy and open the door to MIT and the STEM world.
We have closed our daily operations - thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past 6 years! Though we no longer offer outreach programs, all of our videos will still be freely available (and more are coming in 2017!). Take a look at this site to learn more.
