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 outreach programs will be virtual until further notice based on MIT's safety policies. This includes LLRISE, LLCipher, Science on Saturday, and all other scheduled programming. Thank you for your continued interest in Lincoln Laboratory’s STEM programs.

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.
STEM Program
  • Middle School (Grades 6–8)
  • High School (Grades 9–12)
FIRST Tech Challenge is a national robotics program for students in grades 7–12 who are interested in building and programming their own robot from a kit and then testing it in competition against other teams.
STEM Program
  • Elementary School (Grades K-5)
  • Middle School (Grades 6–8)
Guided by coaches, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League robotics teams (made up of students in grades 4–8) research a real-world problem, such as food safety, recycling, or energy, and are challenged to develop a solution. Students also build a robot from a Lego kit and learn how to program it to complete specific obstacles.
STEM Program
  • Elementary School (Grades K-5)
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics offers FIRST LEGO League Jr. programs to students aged 6 to 10.
