The Women's Technology Program (WTP) is a new residential summer school for high school students to live at MIT and study electrical engineering and computer science (EECS). In this thesis I present background research evaluating the state of the current gender imbalance in EECS as well as research describing other initiatives for improvement. I then describe the design and implementation of WTP at a level that it could be replicated by other universities. Finally, I analyze the results of WTP's first year and present suggestions for future development.
