However, we are excited to welcome students to a virtual Project Teach experience. On this page you will find a virtual campus tour, a series of class videos from Harvard professors, perspectives from current Harvard undergraduates on their college experiences, and more.

A new take on entertainment

The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) is an incubator for creativity where students consistently push the limits of modern theater. As one of our key partners, the A.R.T. offers the opportunity for Project Teach participants to go behind the scenes of a show's pre-production during their campus visit.

Exploring College Classes

Dancing it out

"I love moving with young people. I'm trying new ways of doing things and what we think teaching and learning looks like." Harvard lecturer Aysha Upchurch teaches HipHopEx, a Project Teach offering that explores the roles and possibilities for Hip Hop arts in educational settings.

Thinking outside the box

“You don’t have to study something traditional to have a successful education, and whatever you’re passionate about is the thing you should be pursuing." Harvard alumnus Devon Guinn '17 has an inspiring message for students who attend his popular beatboxing class.
