Winter Session 2018

Sunday, January 07, 2018 to Tuesday, January 09, 2018
9:00 am to 9:00 pm

 

Join us for three days of creativity, challenge, and innovation as we host this year's Winter Session. The focus of Winter Session is to encourage the entrepreneurial mindset at WPI. The tracks will provide you with tools and inspiration to gain new skills, work together as teams, and practice the processes that help move ideas into reality. Choose from one of these three tracks: 

  • Innovation Workshops and Sponsored Design Challenge

    A 2-day experience featuring one packed day of workshops to introduce participants to various topics and methods to help them develop a strong idea to convey for the design challenge the following day.

  • Fine Arts and Maker Classes

    Take advantage of this opportunity to experience a variety of classes at two of Worcester’s established creative education centers, Technocopia and the Worcester Center for Crafts.

  • Value Creation for Student Projects

    WPI Trustee, Curt Carlson, will lead a full-day workshop on creating value and effectively pitching your idea with the NABC model.  This workshop will be offered to students who already have a project in the works.
