A message from SPARK, a program for middle and high school students in treated in STEM learning:

With spring less than a month away, it’s time for Spark again! We’d like let you know that student registration for Spark is now open. The first round of student registration is due by 2/28.

Spark is a two-day program for 7th and 8th grade students happening on March 11 and 12 this year. We have over 200 different classes which you can see here. Classes being taught this year include Intro to Hand Lettering, Rockets, Mutant Plushie Lab, and more!

Join us in learning about almost anything on MIT’s campus!

How to Register

Spark uses a lottery to assign students to classes. You can enter class preferences until Tuesday, 2/28 at 11:59 PM, at which point we will run the lottery.

To get a full schedule, we recommend ranking your top 3 classes and starring at least 10 classes per time block. All class choices will be entered into the lottery. Our lottery is not first-come first-served; as long as you enter your preferences before the deadline (2/28), they will be considered equally with everyone else’s.

Start the registration process by completing registration steps 0-2 at



More detailed information is available at our Spark details page or in our Lottery FAQ.


Finally, make sure you regularly check the email address that your account is registered under. Only registered students will receive future emails about Spark 2017.


If you have any questions, email us at <>. Happy registering and see you at Spark!
