The Foisie Innovation Studio, named in honor of WPI’s most generous individual benefactor, will be the physical manifestation of WPI’s distinctive project-based approach to STEM higher education. 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 this learning will unfold.
With your help, the Foisie Innovation Studio will rise as a state-of-the-art innovation space best suited for WPI’s distinctive hands-on collaborative problem-solving. It will advance the WPI Plan by providing a home for project-based learning that will enable integration across disciplines and all levels of learning and research—undergraduate, graduate, faculty, alumni and industry partners. The Foisie Innovation Studio will become known as the most dynamic and exciting place on campus, where ideas grow, collide, and develop into transformational solutions for the challenges facing communities around the world.
With the Alden Trust Challenge, we invite you to look forward with us. If we raise $9 million together for the Foisie Innovation Studio, the Alden Trust will give another $3 million to this important project. Do your part to make the Foisie Innovation Studio a vibrant center for collaborative learning, impactful research, and transformative projects. Every gift makes an impact.
