The MIT Beaver Works Summer Institute is a rigorous, world-class STEM program for talented rising high school seniors. The 2017 program featured three project-based, workshop-style courses. In the RACECAR course, students programmed small robotic cars to autonomously navigate a racetrack. For the Autonomous Air Vehicle Racing challenge, students designed quadrotors to fly autonomously in an aerial race. Students in the third workshop built their own Alexa-like cognitive assistants by applying techniques from artificial intelligence.
