For WPI Students
WPI Campus Liaisons
K-12 classes visit our campus or request presentations to be made at in their classrooms. We are looking for volunteers to help. If you would be interested in spending an occasional hour or two with groups when they come to campus – showing them the type of research or projects you work on, or if you’d like to go out and talk to groups once or twice a year, please contact Martha Cyr, email@example.com.
Community Service Work Study (CSWS)
CSWS is the federal work-study program placing work-study students in community service oriented positions. Visit WPI’s Student Activities Office Community Service Work Study to learn more.
Propose a K-12 Project
WPI undergraduate students are required to complete a project that relates science and technology to society or human needs. This is a great opportunity to work with a school system. View examples and details on how to propose a K-12 project.
