MITE attendees are immersed in first year engineering projects. The agenda includes SAT review, engineering design, time management, and social acclimatization to college life. Student participants build a strong sense of community and are able to return to their high schools with a better evaluation of their potential. We have seen an average improvement in SAT math scores of 90 points. The highest increase was 180 points as measured through pre- and post-testing. All participants apply to Purdue at the close of the program.
