There are regular pre-college summer programs, and then there’s Frontiers.
A residential, hands-on summer STEM program for high school students, Frontiers is celebrating more than 30 years of challenging participants to explore the outer limits of their knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with current laboratory techniques and exploring unsolved problems across a wide spectrum of disciplines.
Immersive STEM and humanities work with the option of earning college credit? Tech yeah! Whether you’re trying to find the perfect STEM summer program for juniors or summer programs for seniors, we welcome both 11th and 12th graders!
Frontiers participants will be utilizing state-of-the-art technology and facilities, and enjoy added activities such as evening workshops, field trips, movies, live performances, and sports tournaments. Throughout each hands-on summer STEM session, participants will focus most of their time in a Major Course and some of their time in a Minor Course. Learn from WPI professors and graduate students while using experimental, analytical, and computer technology at our summer STEM program.
