Harvard, MIT Campus Tours and Lab Visits

Harvard and MIT Campus Tours and laboratory visits are scheduled each year.

Sightseeing

We will visit the historical places to see first-hand where the United States was founded and learn about its history. Walk along The Freedom Trail, try many tastes at Quincy Market, when tired of walking hop on a Duck Tour and take a walk along Charles River. Feel smarter (pronounced SMAHTAH) at Harvard Square, join sessions at Harvard and MIT.
