The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), ISASA and St John’s College, are proud to invite pupils entering Grade 12 in 2024 to attend a week-long set of workshops aimed at developing advanced Mathematics and Scientific competencies.

This incredible opportunity is available exclusively to ISASA member-school pupils currently completing Grade 11, and who are taking Mathematics and Physical Science as matric subjects.

The course has been carefully curated and will be presented by a range of dynamic undergraduate and postgraduate MIT students.

  • Dates: Monday, 8 January 2024 – Friday, 12 January 2024
  • Times: 09:00 – 15:00 daily
  • Venue: St John’s College, Houghton

Learners requiring accommodation may check in from Monday, 8 January 2024 and check out on Friday, 12 January 2024. An additional charge will apply for learners wishing to check in earlier and/or check out later.

There are only 100 places available for this incredible enrichment opportunity and the only criteria is that students must be doing Mathematics and Physical Sciences as subjects with a minimum 60% average mark, as well as how soon an applicant completes the on-line registration.
