Overview
The mission of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship, including K-12 learning.

Greater neuroscientific understanding of the mechanics of learning, particularly among members of disadvantaged communities, will help bring about academic, economic, and civic success for all students.
