The STEM Education Center and the greater WPI community supports K-12 educators and their classrooms by offering opportunities for educators to bring students on campus, sending experts to your classroom, and providing educators with access to a library of innovative and up-to-date resources, both available to borrow and online.

Bring Your Students to WPI
