Hundreds of Interactive Qualifying Projects are completed each year by WPI juniors as part of their graduation requirements. A fraction of those are then submitted to be considered for a President's IQP Award, and on Friday, Feb. 1, five student teams gave their final presentations in front of a panel of judges to determine the winners of the 2018 awards.
Presented annually, the President's IQP Awards are given to student teams whose IQP work is determined to be outstanding in its focus on science, technology, and society.
This year's winning team featured women's rowers Kylie Dickinson (Meredith, NH) and Sarah St. Pierre (Maynard, MA), and baseball's Tyler Weiss (Monroe, CT). Women's soccer's Sierra Palmer (Knoxville, TN) was a member of the runner up team and other finalists included women's swimming & diving's Stephanie Marcucci (Dingmans Ferry, PA) and recent men's track & field graduate Thomas Mackintosh.
