In the Launch program for 9th and 10th-grade students will leverage research and technology to find solutions to current problems in a variety of scientific fields alongside WPI’s renowned faculty. Students will be able to step in the shoes of a video game designer, computer programmer, crime scene investigator, or robotics engineer. Registration opens on February 15, 2021, and fills on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Frontiers program, running for over 35 years, is a program for rising 11th and 12th-grade students who want to explore STEM through a collegiate lens. Students will be challenged to explore the outer limits of their knowledge in STEM and explore unsolved global issues, along with a touch of humanities through another aspect such as financial literacy, business entrepreneurship, ethics of artificial intelligence, or other options.  The application is now open and fills on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Frontiers for Credit is a pre-college program designed for rising 11th and 12th graders who are interested in earning college credit and experiencing an academically fulfilling college course. Students enroll in a WPI undergraduate course, lasting 5-weeks and taught by WPI’s world-renowned faculty. ​Upon completion, students receive an official college transcript. The application is now open. WPI courses fill on a first-come, first-serve basis.
