Pre-college Programs

At Wentworth Institute of Technology, we have developed a pre-college experience called ImpactLab. It's a two-week residential summer experience for rising juniors and seniors in high school, that lets you try college on for size. But not just college. At ImpactLab, you can try a profession on for size. Do you want to help the world with engineering solutions? Design solutions? Scientific solutions? 

ImpactLab is a head start on figuring out what you want to do with your life. AND, best of all, it’s two weeks living and collaborating with new friends who share your concerns—and your fascinations. Problem solvers like you. Learn more about our sessions and offering below.
