Be inspired. Have fun. Discover at WPI.

Have a student interested in engineering?
How about robotics?
Or maybe music?

Those are just a few examples of WPI’s available pre-collegiate programs. A great opportunity to spark interest and expand knowledge for participants in a wide variety of topics, they’re educational, immersive, hands-on, and most important—fun.

Academic programs are offered for elementary, middle, and high school students both during the school year and over the summer, with topics ranging from introductory STEM courses and robotics and math competitions, to the humanities and arts and sports camps.

WPI’s pre-collegiate programs have helped students explore STEM fields while honing their leadership and collaborative skills, building confidence, and encouraging friendships—all with the common goal of helping students pursue their passions and position themselves for future successes.
