At the core of the Terrascope program is one basic but important idea: MIT students, even as freshmen, are ready to take control of their own education and to tackle big, important problems. With each new class of freshmen, Terrascope explores a different global issue called a Mission – and it’s the students who take command of each Mission. Our students work in teams to develop solutions, drawing on diverse perspectives, interdisciplinary research, and a supportive Terrascope community.
The Terrascope community comes together throughout the year, connecting freshmen with a support network of upperclassmen, MIT alumni, faculty and staff. Learn more
