Does anyone know any CS extracurriculars?Answered
I'm interested in good Computer Science and engineering extracurriculars for MIT. Also, do you have any recommended summer programs at MIT to do research in Comp. Sci?

I dont anything about MIT comp sci programs but I can answer the EC parts
As long as you remember MIT is never a sure thing here are some Comp Sci/Engineering ECs
Comp Sci ECs
Program/Make an app
Make a blog about your favorite parts of Comp Sci
Get a certificate in different programming languages
Make a computer game
However, remember that elite schools want not just a spike Check out the youtube video by Afnan titled Erinn Andrews Standford Admission Officer Casestudy #6
Write a blog about favorite engineering things or other notable engineering events/inventions
Make a robot and compete at FIRST
Make different Bridges and examine them about structure etc especially true for civil engineering
(Can put on blog)
Also your ECs don't just have to be ENG/Comp Sci as in the video you are too specialized and may hurt admissions chance.
For my blog, I use google sites
Hope this helps!
For the summer program side of this, check out MIT's Lincoln Laboratory programs like LLCipher (https://www.ll.mit.edu/outreach/llcipher) and LLRISE (https://www.ll.mit.edu/outreach/llrise). I've had students do them in the past and they seemed like great experiences.
