WPI’s STEM Education Center is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and as we approach Commencement, it's clear that some important seeds–planted years ago–have taken root and are blooming in some important ways. Three members of the Class of 2022, who've already made a big impact in K-12 classrooms in Worcester, will leave the university well prepared to continue inspiring the next generation of STEM leaders.
“Our undergraduate Teacher Preparation Program intentionally places most of our teacher candidates in the Worcester Public Schools, and we are seeing the positive results with those high school students," said Kathy Chen, Director of WPI’s STEM Education Center. "Likewise, the Women’s Research and Mentorship Program (WRAMP) has reached many Worcester high school alumni who are current WPI students. It’s great to see how all these programs have become intertwined, and how WPI has partnered with the Worcester community.
