Making an Impact in our Community

Community service and educational outreach are important to us. Our outreach programs are motivated by the desire of our employees to help people in need and to encourage students' interest and participation in engineering and science.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, MIT Lincoln Laboratory has suspended all summer K-12 outreach programs. This includes LLRISE, LLCipher, and all other scheduled programming. We are following MIT’s policy on K-12 Summer programming. In light of this announcement, Lincoln Laboratory is exploring ways we can modify these courses in a virtual environment. Thank you for your continued interest in Lincoln Laboratory’s STEM programs.

The Girls Who Build Wearable Technology online course guides students on how to use computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering to make their own wearable technology.
STEM Program
  • Middle School (Grades 6–8)
Twice a year, 100 middle school girls visit Lincoln Laboratory for the day to explore engineering. They explore the contents of cellphones, cameras, and clocks to learn about the inner workings of various types of electronic devices.
STEM Program
  • High School (Grades 9–12)
The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) arranges internships for 40 high school seniors interested in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Lincoln Laboratory selects two students to do hands-on, project-related work with a mentor.
STEM Program
  • High School (Grades 9–12)
LLCipher workshop is a one-week program that introduces high school students to cryptography, an approach to securing data.
STEM Program
  • High School (Grades 9–12)
Lincoln Laboratory Radar Introduction for Student Engineers (LLRISE) is a two-week, residential radar workshop for rising high school seniors.
Online STEM Course
  • High School (Grades 9–12)
  • High School Teachers
The Lincoln Laboratory Radar Introduction for Student Engineers (LLRISE) workshop is online. Teachers and students are provided with a list of materials and instructions on how to obtain them. Then the students can listen to the lectures and follow a video on how to build radar.
Education Resource
  • High School Teachers
We offer high school physics and science teachers an opportunity to take part in the Laboratory's two-week radar workshop for high school seniors. The goal is to introduce teachers to a hands-on program that they could implement in their classes or as an afterschool program.
Online STEM Course
  • Graduate Students
The Radar Systems Engineering course (video, audio, screen-captured PowerPoint slides, and separate pdf slides) has been developed as an introductory course in radar systems for first-year graduate students, advanced senior undergraduates, or professionals new to radar.
Online STEM Course
  • Undergraduate Students
  • Graduate Students
This set of 10 lectures, about 11+ hours in duration, was excerpted from a three-day course developed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory to provide an understanding of radar systems concepts and technologies to military officers and DoD civilians involved in radar systems development, acquisition, and related fields. That three-day program consisted of a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, laboratory sessions, and tours.
