Tech Camp - About

UNH Tech Camp was founded more than a decade ago to inspire middle and high school students (grades 5 - 12) through collaborative, hands-on activities that bring science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life. Tech Camp is open to all levels of experience — an inquisitive mind and sense of adventure are all that are required to enroll!

Offered through the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Tech Camp provides students with access to state-of-the-art facilities, advanced technology and award-winning faculty. Since its beginning, UNH Tech Camp has fostered a diverse and inclusive community, making STEM education available to all curious learners. Scholarship funding is available based on financial need.

During Tech Camp, a wide range of STEM subject areas are explored through a dynamic, project-based learning format that emphasizes creative thinking and problem solving. This year’s camp will also feature special projects focused on regenerative medicine and biofabrication as part of NH CREATES, which is funded by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) grant from the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Earn High School Credit!

UNH has partnered with Virtual Learning Academy Charter School (VLACS) to allow high school students the opportunity to earn credit in conjunction with their participation in Tech Camp. To earn credit, students will complete the program and, with the help of an instructor, complete VLACS work. For more information, email Dr. Carmela Amato-Wierda at ccaw@unh.edu.
