Welcome to the NCSSSMST 2002 Student Conference! We at WPI and the Massachusetts Academy of Mathematics and Science are honored to be hosting you in Worcester, MA. This yearís conference "Crossroads: Where Engineering, Science and Technology Meet Life", will allow students to explore the humanitarian side of the sciences. From Fire Protection to Robotics to Photography, see how everyday science and technology affect human life.

Worcester is an up and coming leader in the technology community and WPI is at its heart. Once an industrial city, Worcester is now turning to Bioengineering, Pharmaceuticals, Stem Cell Research and Material Engineering as its claim to fame.
