Holy Name and WPI Students to Collaborate on STEM Research

Saturday, October 10, 2015

 

Holy Name High School and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) have announced that their students will work together to research best practices in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum at the high school level.

The program, called the Holy Name - WPI Collaboration for Application Oriented Research, will provide the opportunity for Holy Name students to engage in research programs alongside WPI students working on their Interactive Qualifying Projects (IQPs).

Ed Reynolds, Headmaster at Holy Name, said “The school is thrilled with our association with WPI. Though we are currently a leader in the area of STEM, this program takes us to another level.”

According to John Orr, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at WPI, the theme of the program revolves around “innovations in high school science, engineering, and technology education as preparation for college and careers.”

The initial projects will include Life Sciences curriculum and laboratory infrastructure review, as well as the specific goal of integrating real-world experience with Holy Name’s wind turbine into the educational program.

The program is scheduled to begin October 27.

Holy Name's Annual Open House will be held on Sunday, November 1 from 12 PM to 2 PM.

For more information on the collaborative program, contact Scott Anderson, Director of Development at Holy Name, at 508-459-3010, or [email protected].
