The Robert A. Foisie '56 Innovation Studio

More than 40 years ago, the WPI Plan made space in the curriculum for hands-on project-based problem-solving. Now the Foisie Innovation Studio will make physical space on campus in which WPI’s distinctive approach to teaching and learning will unfold. With the Alden Trust Challenge, we invite you to look forward with us. If alumni raise $9 million together, the Alden Trust will give another $3 million to this important project. Every gift makes an impact.
