At the Washington DC Project Center, WPI students pursing their IQP are granted the opportunity to examine the inner workings of government and the importance of national action in the areas of the environment, science education, urban issues, and consumer protection.
The Washington DC Project Center is WPI's first and oldest operating center, and students visit it annually.
We invite you to join Congressman James McGovern (D-MA), alumni, parents, faculty, project sponsors and this year's Washington, D.C. Project Center students as WPI celebrates the students' accomplishments.
