The MIT Club of Puget Sound, part of the MIT Alumni Association, is an all-volunteer run organization for MIT Alumni living in the greater Seattle area. Each year we host a number of exciting events like these:
  • Monthly lectures and events featuring prominent local speakers and visiting professors from MIT
  • Monthly Happy Hours/Networking Events in Seattle and the Eastside
  • The Science and Engineering Program for Teachers (SEPT), in which we select five teachers each year to attend this one-week summer program for primary, middle, and high-school teachers to take a "drink from the fire hose" that is MIT
  • Discounted attendance to MIT Enterprise Forum of the Northwest events
  • A December luncheon with current MIT students from our area during their Winter break
  • A dinner honoring new students admitted to MIT for the following year
  • Our Annual Summer Picnic, a great chance to meet old friends and make new ones
Our Club is supported 100% by volunteers and dues/donations from members - we hope you'll join us.

Naval Undersea Museum
Come join your fellow alumni for a trip to the Kitsap Penninsula.  We will catch the 8:30 ferry from the Seattle Downtown Coleman Dock (we will have some carpool spaces available for those who don't want to drive). Arriving in Bremerton we will drive to the Naval Undersea Museum (http://www.navalunderseamuseum.org/) in Keyport. There we will have about 2 hours to explore the museum. (Admission is free!)  We'll then head to the Boat Shed restaurant right on the water in the Manette section of Bremerton for lunch. We plan to catch the 3 PM ferry back to Seattle!
