Future Leaders in Technology and Engineering FLiTE By Jesus Alvarez Tabitha Bonilla Yamicia Connor Yonatan Tekleab Etienne Toussaint Abstract Future Leaders in Technology and Engineering FLiTE is a project based educational enrichment program that addresses the disparities in education faced by low income and minority students We plan to work with 12 students from Cambridge Rindge and Latin for three weeks in January 2005 Our program includes traditional math and science lectures and explores these concepts through a group project However what distinguishes FLiTE from other educational enrichment programs is that FLiTE focuses on leadership development in science technology engineering and math STEM and helps the students to understand the relationship between the STEM fields and public policy Throughout the three weeks the students will be introduced to several guest speakers who are leaders in their fields and using their skills to influence public policy and encourage change within their own community We are striving to dispel the notion that these fields are reserved for an elite few and instead to reveal to the students the ability they have to be original creative and innovative By introducing them to highly technical disciplines we hope to encourage the students to take ownership of these fields so that they feel enabled to use these skills to promote change within their own community FLiTE is scheduled to begin on January 16 and to end on February 6 Recruitment and admission for the program will be conducted in early December 2005 The program will cost approximately 4 600 The students will meet with project coordinators after school for ninety minutes Monday through Thursday at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School On Saturdays the students will attend four hour workshops at MIT where they will construct their project Our team is composed of five undergraduates from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology With diverse technical backgrounds we are eager to
