“I thought it would be meaningful to build a piece that represents how it's OK to show what's on the inside, even when it’s confusing or all over the place. It's good to let people know who you are as a person,” -  Stephanie Chou ’19, who built a kinetic art sculpture to encourage members of the MIT community to express themselves and find support in challenging times.

Nearly 1,000 students, instructors, and guests packed into MIT's Johnson Ice Rink on Aug. 4 to kick off the final event for the 2019 Beaver Works Summer Institute (BWSI). It was a full day of competitions and demonstrations — the culmination of four weeks of hard work and dedication from the students and staff. The event, held at various locations on MIT campus, was a fitting end to what many of the students described as a transformational experience. In addition to obtaining more hands-on experience, the people that I have met and bonded with made this program a moment in my life that I will never forget, says Swanyee Aung, a student in the UAS-SAR class from the Bronx High School of Science in New York.

The program is run jointly by @Lincoln_Laboratory and @MIT_Engineering. Learn more, see link in profile.

Through her startup, MBA student Brooke Wages seeks to prepare people for high-skilled trade jobs after they’ve served time. #ThisisMIT

Q: Who inspires you most?
A: Shirley Chisholm. She’s the first African-American woman in Congress. She actually ran for president, didn’t get the Democratic nomination. Boss. She was a teacher, she’s from New Jersey, her slogan was “Unbought and Unbossed.” She’s super sharp and kickass.

Q: What is your favorite way to destress?
A: I have a dog named Grace and she is the best. She is a chihuahua-heeler mix and all-black. All-black everything, that’s how we operate. We go to the dog park almost every day. And I love taking art classes and dance classes with my startup team!

Q: What is the most important relationship to you?
A: My relationship with Christ.

Q: What’s your nickname?
A: Bo, and it was self-given.

Q: What do you and your family like to do for fun?
A: We love to go to museums. There’s a lot of good ones, the Museum of Science, the Museum of Children, the MFA. And of course, we go to playgrounds!

Q: Is there a specific piece of architecture in Boston that you enjoy?
A: The Boston Public Library. One area that I really like is this urban block in Cambridge which has a church, a synagogue, a mosque, and residences in just one urban block. It’s a very interesting neighborhood for me to see and read about. It’s near Prospect Street.

Q: What’s a hidden talent of yours?
A: I play a Persian instrument. It’s called a Ney, it’s a flute made of reed. I have one in my office but nobody knows that I play. I usually play it in the basement of our apartment!

A giant leap, 50 years ago today: With a huge assist from members of MIT's Instrumentation Lab, who developed the onboard guidance, navigation, and controls systems for NASA's Apollo Project, as well as numerous others around the Institute, Buzz Aldrin ScD ’63 climbed down to the surface of the moon, joining Neil Armstrong as the second Earthling to visit another world. Armstrong snapped Aldrin's iconic portrait shortly thereafter.

 MIT played a critical role in developing the flight software for NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, which launched to the moon on this date in 1969. A key contributor to this effort was Margaret Hamilton (above left), who led the Software Engineering Division of the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory, now the independent Draper Laboratory, which contracted with NASA to produce Apollo's guidance system. But Hamilton was just one of a number of women working at the Instrumentation Laboratory at the time. Others included Jayne Partridge, who was responsible for developing the semiconductor parts used in the Apollo Guidance Computer; Madeline Sullivan (second from left), who programmed dynamics and control systems and connected guidance and navigation hardware; Elaine Denniston (second from right), who keypunched data written by staff programmers, and Saydean Zelin (right), who designed software that allowed astronauts to control Apollo's engines. #Apollo50th

Since 1916, MIT’s Great Dome has had pride of place in the Institute’s iconography: Sitting atop Building 10 and towering over Killian Court, it has witnessed the inaugurations of presidents and the graduations of generations of students; it has appeared, in photographs and stylized depictions, on letterhead, class rings, and hosts of souvenirs.

Q: Do you like nature?
A: I do. I have a lot of travel coming up with conferences and stuff. I’m definitely excited about that, but I’m also taking a weekend to go camping with my friends in the White Mountains. That will be nice to disconnect for a couple of days, go hiking and enjoy nature away from the city. That’s one thing I really like about Boston. It’s a nice city, there are a lot of things to do, but then you can drive a couple of hours and you can be at nice beaches or the middle of the mountains and get away from it all.

Q: What’s something people don’t really know about you?
A: I can juggle. It took me a while to learn. One summer I just practiced with a friend who knew how and finally figured it out. I now believe that anyone can learn how to juggle. You think ‘no I can’t I’m not coordinated enough’ but you can. Anyone can learn how to juggle.

Q: What’s one thing you miss from home that you wish were here?
A: This might be cheating, but I have to go with my sister and my niece. If they could be here, that would be amazing. I FaceTime them multiple times a day. I always feel so guilty that I can’t be around all the time, so I would move them here with me. And I guess my brother-in-law should come.

Mason Grimshaw grew up on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota but moved to Rapid City during high school to pursue a better education. When it came time to apply to college, he hopped online, typed “best engineering schools” into Google, and applied to two places: MIT and his father’s alma mater, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. He was admitted to both, but when he got into the Institute, his father insisted that he go.

Q: What's your favorite place to go in Boston?
A: The Prudential Skywalk. When there's a Fenway game and the sun is setting, you can see all of Boston and the lights start turning on. Where I'm from, you can always see the horizon. Being able to see the horizon in a different way, to see all of the work that became Boston, is mindblowing to me.

Q: Do you prefer the city or country?
A: If I had to answer, I would say the country. I just feel more comfortable there. If I had to pick living in the city or the country for the rest of my life, I would pick the country. I feel the things that are really important bubble up, there's less noise in a real sense but also there are less unimportant things. You're with your family and nature more, so in some ways, it helps you get to yourself more. You can reflect easier and think about what life means.

Q: What's a secret talent of yours?
A: I play Rocket League and was once in the top 2% of players in the world.

When Clare Kim began her fall 2017 semester as the teaching assistant for 21H.S01, the inaugural “MIT and Slavery” course, she didn’t know she and her students would be creating a historical moment of their own at the Institute.

See link in bio for the MIT news article on Clare: http://mitsha.re/ZYOB50uE4QS  #ThisisMIT

Q: What is one thing that surprised you about MIT before coming here?
A: What surprised me about MIT, or rather the connection that I never made clearly until coming here, was that MIT was founded right at the start of the Civil War.

Q: What is your secret talent?
A: I have a first-degree black belt in taekwondo. I practice on my own. I used to compete in college. I was practicing with a group all the way up until three years ago.

Q: What is your favorite movie?
A: One of my favorite films is Before Sunset. It’s part of the [Before] trilogy. I don’t like the first film because I think it’s too cheesy. The third film is too depressing. The second film I like.
