Student Activities
Signature Programs

Ann S. Pollina Center for Women in Science and Engineering (WISE): Maker Space, complete with a general work area, well-equipped with supplies and tools, which allows more students to work on more projects. Robotics Lab, enables tremendous expansion of our robotics program — a semi-permanent field, better storage, and generous counter space, and increased access to each robot project. A dedicated classroom space, used for computer science and engineering electives, which support a broader range of individual and group work.

Global Exchange Programs: Offers a new and rewarding experience for students to explore cultural differences. Students are challenged to embrace these differences and invited to share new perspectives with the greater Westover community upon return. These experiences are part of our on-going education to more deeply understand ourselves and one another.

The Environmental Sustainability Program: Seeks to inspire each member of the Westover community to see their own individual impact on the world around them and to learn the power of their choices and voices to enact change.
