Tech Camp

Since 2007, the University of New Hampshire has been working toward bridging the gap between education and workforce development through a program called UNH Tech Camp. Every summer, middle and high school students visit the UNH campus in Durham to collaborate with one another through activities focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Under the UNH Tech Camp umbrella, students can take part in such programs as Techsplorers for grades 5-8, Techventurers for grades 7-10, Techleaders for grades 10-12, the Dinah Whipple STEAM Academy. In addition, there’s Tech for Teachers, for K-12 teachers.

The camp is offered through the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, which allows students in the summer program to access the school’s state-of-the-art facilities, advanced technology and even its faculty.

In 2011, the camp added special projects that include areas of focus such as regenerative medicine and biofabrication, thanks to support from NH CREATES, a workforce development initiative. Read full story.
