Read the Article: MIT Cheerleaders: We ARE Science Cheerleaders!

MIT Cheerleading Squad featured on ScienceCheerleader.com

“The Science Cheerleaders are professional cheerleaders pursuing science careers who playfully challenge stereotypes, turn everyone onto science by encouraging participation in citizen science activities, and inspire young women (including 3-4 million U.S. cheerleaders) to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math. We do this by recasting the image of scientists and engineers while giving people the opportunity to explore their personal interests as a gateway to science. We communicate in ways that inspire people using our very real, very personal stories. We do this at schools, festivals, malls, on tv, online, at cheer events, games, bars…wherever the people are! The point: science is accessible to ALL!”

Welcome to the Official Site of the MIT Cheerleaders!

We are so excited to be conditioning this summer at the MIT Outdoor Track every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7:30-9pm! We are welcoming everyone — both returning members and new recruits — to join us in working on our fitness in preparation for the Fall 2012 MIT Football Season!

If you’re interested in joining us for conditioning, or have any questions about membership, feel free to email us at cheer-captains@mit.edu.

Have a Great Summer! See You In the Fall!
