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.
