Reddit's "Ask Me Anything" sessions

Reddit AMA: January 14, 2020

"My favorite thing about the IQP program is the ability to go to so many different places in the world. WPI builds IQP into your curriculum so any student no matter the major is able to go abroad if they want. I loved being on IQP. I was able to go to Panama this past A-Term, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. You truly are fully immersed in the culture, and it's amazing being able to work with a sponsor to perform a project and better help a company/country.

I went on a tour of the Panama Canal and exploring jungles, rainforests, swimming in waterfalls, hiking, and beautiful beaches. My project was creating a mobile phone application for a self-guided tour of a National Park. We coded the App from scratch and it is currently in the Apple Store! Great experience to put on a resume as well."

Current students at WPI hold AMAs 2-3 times a year. Check out the archives if you want to read more of their answers!
