Lives Improve Through Engineering & Science (LITES)

How do engineers prevent injuries by designing airbags and car seats? Or improve lives by repairing joints, limbs and organs?

LITES (Lives Improve Through Engineering & Science) is a two-week residential program created by Kettering University. LITES Introduces young women, who will complete 11th grade by July 1, 2022, to what engineers and scientists do and how they improve people's lives through math, science and technology to find solutions to human problems. All classes and labs are taught by our amazing faculty. Students will also have opportunities to strike up meaningful relationships with female mentors. Below are some of the opportunities participants will have: 

  • See how engineers help prevent injuries by designing airbags and child car seats and testing them with crash test dummies.

  • Learn how engineers repair joints, limbs, and organs by making replacements that are functional and durable.

  • Explore environmental challenges using science and engineering.

  • Solve crimes by combining science and technology.

  • Learn how to change the world through science and engineering.

  • Opportunities to make new friends who love math and science.

  • Great social activities with your LITES mentors.
