Summer Middle School Tech Institute (MSTI)

A lively introduction to a variety of STEM subjects for hundreds of local middle school students, including over 125 students attending free of charge.

Fun Week-Long STEM-based Courses Engage Young Students: Recent offerings include “Web Page Design” (pictured), “Busted, Confirmed, or Plausible,” “Got an App for That?,” “Fun with Electronics,” and more.

After several years off-campus due to construction, TJ is excited to announce that MSTI 2017 will held at TJ’s newly renovated building, where students can take advantage of the school’s latest facilities and equipment.

Opportunities to Participate: Corporate partners are invited to propose and staff new Middle School Tech Institute courses, in order to provide another way to expand the impact of this outreach initiative.

Scholarships Expand Opportunities: Every summer, dozens of students attend TJʼs Middle School Tech Institute courtesy of our generous corporate and foundation sponsors. Students attending MSTI on full scholarship include students from Northern Virginia and DC who are from underrepresented groups or are economically disadvantaged.
