Each year 6 to 7 student teams work with local Costa Rican organizations and agencies to find solutions to pressing problems in environmental sustainability and development. WPI has been working in Costa Rica for almost 20 years. Several years of projects are highlighted to the left.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our past project sponsors for their commitment to making the WPI Costa Rica Project Center a success.
