The Pre-college program is more than an academic experience! With a full schedule of activities, including evening workshops, field trips, movies, and tournaments, we ensure that our students have fun while exploring STEM this summer. ImpactLab participants will meet current Wentworth undergraduate students, who will serve as live-in peer leaders, and interact with participants from across the country and around the globe. Learn more about what awaits you below.

Activities

Group field trips to Faneuil Hall and Newbury Street, movie and game nights in the residence halls, basketball in Tansey Gym, or volleyball on the Quad—and so much more. Our events will help orient you to our community and the city of Boston.
