MLMS student questions MIT program’s fairness
My name is Eric Lundgren and I am an 8th grade student at Mirror Lake Middle School. When I first heard about an engineering course I wanted to go, but I later found out it was only for girls. I was not too pleased but I accepted that. After I heard that it was taught by MIT professors and that it was a once-in-a-lifetime program, I really wanted to go. It also did not help when they handed out participation certificates and talked about how great it was in class.
