School Year Programs

At Wentworth Institute of Technology, we believe in the power of inspiration. That's why we offer unique programming opportunities for students at the elementary and middle school levels. 

For students in fifth to sixth grade, Wentworth encourages students to discover the intricacies of engineering and learn more about what it means to be an engineer at our Engineers: Make a World of Difference and Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day.

In addition, we look to inspire young women and non-binary students in our Girls Who Code program, allowing students to learn foundational knowledge of coding and how it can be applied to change the world.
