Description of internet content
WPI's "Great Problems Seminar (GPS)" are two-term courses that introduce first-year students to WPI's project-based curriculum by having them work in teams to research global problems and propose solutions. During WPI's fall semester this year, the course projects were focused on how different communities are affected by COVID-19.
While it's easy to imagine students taking classes on COVID-19 in the future, it's interesting to see that it's happening now during the pandemic.
