Coffee Can Radar Update: Lincoln Laboratory debuts new program for young engineers on the RISE

"Lincoln Laboratory debuted a new outreach program this July — a summer workshop instructing students how to build small radar systems. The Lincoln Laboratory Radar Introduction for Student Engineers (LLRISE) program focused on radar technology, which is especially fitting due to the Laboratory’s long history and expertise in radar systems.

The project-based enrichment program was developed from a popular three-week class offered during MIT’s Independent Activity Period between semesters and taught by Laboratory technical staff. The course was slightly modified to suit high school students, yet retained the challenging nature of the curriculum."
