Spring 2019

During Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s D term (March 11 – April 30, 2019) WPI students from a variety of majors engaged in four different community based research projects.

Winter 2019 project sponsors include:

  • Dress for Success
  • Friendly House
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Seven Hills Foundation
  • Quinsigamond Community College
  • Worcester Department of Health and Human Services

In preparation for their community engagement project, a.k.a. Interactive Qualifying Project or IQP, students completed a preparatory course where they drafted project proposals contextualizing the issue their project tackled and identifying a proposed methodology for accomplishing the project objectives. During the project term, students worked 40-50 hours/week exclusively on tackling the project goal. Please click on the links above to find out more details about each project.
