The goal of this project was to compare and contrast Robert Goddard's program of study while enrolled at Worcester Polytechnic Institute with the various components of the educational philosophy of the WPI Plan. Materials regarding both Robert Goddard and the WPI Plan were thoroughly examined, including the original reports of the WPI Planning Committee titled The Future of the Two Towers, Robert Goddard's journals and diaries, as well as various primary source materials held in the archives from Robert Goddard's residency at WPI. The ultimate result this report aims to achieve is to paint Robert Goddard as a prototype for the WPI Plan's objectives, and to affirm that WPI is going in the right direction for the education of modern scientists and engineers.
