Broadening Participation

Our programs seek to make the field of science more inclusive by sharing MIT’s intellectual wealth and cutting-edge resources.

I encourage my students to attend the workshop so they can develop computational thinking skills and learn quantitative approaches. After just seven days, they are more interested in computer science and biotechnology, have a working knowledge of PYTHON and MATLAB, and take a more critical approach to their investigations. They return with a new level of excitement about research and the possibilities of computational approaches. In fact, we are now proposing a course in computational and quantitative biology.
