The Educational Studies Program at MIT is now accepting applications for their Junction Program (see below):
We have recently opened student applications for Junction, one of ESP's two summer programs. Junction is a non-residential program for advanced high school students in the Boston area, typically 10th grade and up. Each year at Junction, 100-130 motivated students join us to learn unique advanced subjects, meet new friends, and enjoy an academic challenge in a fun environment. Junction meets weekday evenings, July 8 - August 15 on MIT's main campus.
This year, Junction is offering ten core courses in a variety of subjects. Take a literary whaling voyage 'round the world in Moby-Dick and Modern America, debate the philosophy of wealth and resources in Distributive Justice, learn about the fourth dimension in Understanding Topology, or see if we've got a course on your favorite subject at <http://esp.mit.edu/learn/Junction/2013/cores.html>. Junction courses are college-level and expect students to spend significant time outside of class on readings, assignments, and projects.

For more information or to apply, visit <esp.mit.edu/learn/Junction>. All applications will be considered equally before April 10; after this date, we will consider applications on a rolling basis to fill any remaining spots in classes. If you have any questions, e-mail us at <junction@mit.edu>.
Information about ESP's other summer program, Summer HSSP, will become available in May. Summer HSSP will meet once per week on weekends, and is open to students in grades 7-12.
We look forward to seeing you at our programs this summer!
