This project, completed in conjunction with the Worcester Technical High School (WTHS) and the proposed Skyline Innovation Center at WTHS, was conducted to determine the commercial and entrepreneurial interest in developing and using an Innovation Center at WTHS. A series of interviews were conducted with Professors from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and local business owners and entrepreneurs. The results showed an overwhelming support for the Skyline Innovation Center in Worcester This Innovation Center would be a great benefit to many local companies and entrepreneurs to assist in the design and fabrication of prototypes and test parts. These efforts would lead to the development of new products and services and new businesses in central Massachusetts.
