Eight high school-age students from Northern Ireland are exploring new frontiers this summer. Quite literally.
The students, all of whom attend “further education” colleges in Northern Ireland, are participating in Frontiers II, a WPI summer program that offers high school students the opportunity to participate in robotics, engineering exploration, global sustainability, or the Women’s Leadership Academy. The program runs until Aug. 1. Frontiers II has run for about six years at WPI while the flagship session of Frontiers has run for 32 years.
