Tech Camp
Tech Camp 2020 planning is underway! Tech Camp will run from July 13-31, 2020
Registration opens up February 17th 


The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences(CEPS) at the University of New Hampshire has offered UNH Tech Camp for over a decade. Every summer Tech Camp opens doors to youth, making available the benefits of the UNH research campus. Students from grades 6-12 interact with project leaders, experiencing opportunities in animation, 3D print design, nanotechnology, bioengineering, robotics, forensics and more.


A message from Tech Camp about the Coronavirus - 

I hope this message finds you all safe at home.  Some of you may be wondering if UNH summer camps, including Tech Camp, will happen amidst the global pandemic.  As of right now, we are planning as IF Tech Camp will happen.  UNH officials will decide if and when to make an alternate decision.  The most current update is below:


Due to the public health concern caused by the COVID-19 virus, UNH administration made the decision to cancel all on-campus events, programs, and noncredit classes for the remainder of the spring semester. This includes spring semester youth programs and events. The health and safety of our staff and the many members of our NH communities that participate in our programs is most important.

Currently, we intend to offer our summer youth programs, however UNH may decide to extend the cancellation period. We recommend that you register for our programs now, with the understanding that you will receive a refund if it is canceled.

Please note that for participants of a youth program already underway, partial refunds may be available at the discretion of the program manager. 

Registered participants for current, spring programs will receive further communication from the program manager.

For now, you might share these pieces of trivia with you children:

  1. Did you know that viruses are one of nature’s form of nanotechnology?  Some of our campers built models of viruses last summer!
  2. I found the following quote from Marie Curie appropriate amidst our global crisis, “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

Please practice social distancing and avoid interacting in groups, no matter how small.  This is the only way we will save lives and prevent our hospitals from being overwhelmed.
