BLOSSOMS
Blended Learning Open Source Science or Math Studies (BLOSSOMS) is a free repository of video modules for high school math and science classes. The ultimate goal is to gather a large body of content generated by gifted volunteer teachers from around the world.

Resources currently available on the site were provided by MIT faculty and PhD students, and include resources in mathematics, physics and biology. The website is growing, and over the coming months there will be BLOSSOMS video modules created by educators in Jordan and Pakistan - all available in English.

Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams
The InvenTeam initiative, created by the Lemelson-MIT Program, offers an unparalleled opportunity for high school students to cultivate their creativity and experience invention.  InvenTeams are teams of high school students, teachers, and mentors that receive grants up to $10,000 each to invent technological solutions to real-world problems. Each InvenTeam chooses its own problem to solve. InvenTeam students rely on inquiry and hands-on problem solving as they apply lessons from science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to develop invention prototypes throughout a school year. Prototypes are showcased at MIT in June.
