OCEAN ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE
July 7, 2012 - July 20, 2013
The Ocean Engineering Experience (OEX) summer academic program is a weeklong opportunity for students entering 11th or 12th
grade. OEX participants gain in-depth experience in the field of ocean engineering through hands-on design and fabrication experiences as they live, eat, study, and work together on the MIT campus, aiming to solve a real-world engineering challenge.
Each year, OEX participants are challenged to design and fabricate a marine vehicle or structure. Students are divided into teams to design mechanical and electrical systems, present and defend their design choices, and finally fabricate, test, and troubleshoot their designs. The program culminates in a public demonstration and presentation of the project.
Throughout the week, students attend lectures, take part in tours and field trips, and participate in labs and lessons that support and inform their work. Topics, which focus on ocean engineering design and fabrication, include circuits and electronics, microcontrollers and computer programming, mechanical design and assembly, and the challenges of working in marine environments.
Partial tuition and travel scholarships are available.
