MIT's commitment to K-12 education issues extends across the Institute. The Physical Science Study Committee (PSSC) began in 1956 as a collaboration between MIT physics professors and high school physics teachers, and dramatically changed the way physics is taught in U.S. high schools. The MIT Educational Studies Program (ESP) was created in 1957 by MIT students who wanted to share their knowledge and creativity with local high school students. Programs like the Whitehead Spring Lecture Series for High School Students, and the MIT Women's Technology Program offer high school students a look at the world of science and engineering each year.
