MISTI

This summer, the MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI) — an international education program for faculty and students at MIT — asked its participants to try something new: show, don’t tell. In an effort to experience interning, researching, teaching, and collaborating through the eyes of an MIT student, MISTI requested footage from over 550 students who went abroad this summer. From Chile to Australia, current MISTI students submitted videos in four categories: MISTI in a Minute, Day in the Life of a MISTI Student, My MISTI Project, and Best Foreign Language Clip.

On Sept. 10 MISTI announced the contest winners at its annual open house. Winners received $500 and MISTI swag. All submissions can be watched on MISTI’s YouTube channel. Watch the winning videos below!
