WPI cordially invites alumni, families and friends to a special event featuring students who will compete for the President's IQP Award. This event is a sneak peek at the projects that will be presented to President Laurie Leshin in C Term.
During this event, the student finalists will present on their work and spend time mingling with guests. Guests will have an opportunity to ask questions about each project - helping to prepare the students for their final presentation - and to vote on the "people's choice award" for best project.
