Important Summer Update

WPI has been continually working to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Our top priority is the health and safety of our faculty, students, staff, and visitors, and WPI is making decisions following the guidance of localstatenational and international health agencies.

WPI has made the difficult decision to cancel our Spark, Ignite, Camp Reach and sports camps and offering online experiences for Launch and Frontiers. We are disappointed by the scale of impact this pandemic has placed on our overall decisions to cancel our in-person summer programs and will miss the opportunity to connect with participants and families during the summer. Please know we have made the decision to cancel with much guidance and overall priority of the health and safety of our participants and their families. We are grateful for your understanding. 

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.
