Tech Camp - About

UNH Tech Camp was founded in 2007 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. Since 2021, the camp has also offered special projects focused on regenerative medicine and biofabrication as part of NH CREATES, a workforce development initiative funded by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) grant from the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

An affiliated professional development program for middle and high school STEM educators, the Tech for Teachers Institute, was started in 2016.
