MIT + Khan = Opportunity to teach and earn $1,000


October 29, 2012

MIT students interested in creating an educational video have the chance to earn $1,000 if their video is selected.  Last year Ian Waitz, MIT’s Dean of Engineering, launched the MIT-K12 project, driven by a series of questions: How can we change the perception of the role of engineers and scientists in the world?  What can MIT do, right now, to improve education at the K12 level?  What if MIT became a publicly accessible “experiential partner” to the country’s K12 educators?  What if MIT students generated short-form videos to aid the work those educators are already doing in their classrooms and homes?  Students interested in making a video for this important project can find more information on the website.
