Our work is reliant on strong partnerships and collaborations with a variety of stakeholders within an ecosystem. These relationships are built upon assets, mutual respect, and the common goal of providing equitable, high-quality STEM.
Most K-12 STEM programs for students are run by our colleagues in the WPI Office of Pre-Collegiate Outreach Programs.
Learning happens not only in the classroom but in informal spaces, and educators include peers, family members, and community members. We work with the greater Worcester community and the STEM Learning Ecosystems to broaden participation in STEM for equity and access to high-quality STEM experiences, especially for those that have been historically excluded or face systemic barriers.
STEM Education Opportunities
WPI faculty, staff, and students work with the STEM Education Project Center, which focuses on access to STEM education opportunities and works with local community-based organizations.
As an active member of Campus Compact, WPI is committed to strengthening community partnerships and engagement. WPI students volunteer at Worcester community-based organizations that serve K-12 Worcester Public School students through programs, mentoring, and tutoring in STEM.
