Our collaborative approach toward championing high-quality, inclusive STEM education for those who have historically been underserved, includes the following:
- Hosting AmeriCorps VISTAs at WPI: With the mission to alleviate poverty, AmeriCorps VISTA members are helping build the infrastructure and capacity at WPI to sustainably and effectively support PreK-12 students, educators, and families in the Worcester community and greater Central Massachusetts region with equitable access to high-quality, integrated, and inclusive STEM education opportunities through a STEM Ecosystem.
- Supervising On-Campus IQPs: Projects sponsored by the STEM Education Project Center situate education in a greater context with socially relevant problems while partnering with nonprofits, educators, and researchers, both locally and globally.
- Serving the Community: The STEM Education Center is responsible for leading the Central MA STEM Network Ecosystem
- Consulting: The STEM Education Center collaborates with WPI community members regarding their research and other projects related to high-quality STEM education.
