Spend Your Summer Exploring Science and Engineering!

UNH Tech Camp is a set of summer programs for students entering grades 6 through 12 designed to increase STEM literacy. The programs engage young people in interactive, hands-on, problem solving activities in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). UNH Tech Camp is offered by the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of New Hampshire and makes available the benefits of the UNH research campus to the community-at-large. Now in their 12th year, these programs are designed to immerse campers in the world of science, engineering and technology.  

2018 Tech Camp at Durham will be running from July 9-27, 2018. We hope you can join us!

UNH Tech Camp has scholarship assistance available for all programs. If you are applying to the BAE Systems Summer STEM Scholars Program, or, If you require financial assistance, whether partial or full, please fill out the Scholarship Application.

Engineeristas - Girls Entering Grades 6-8
July 9-13, 2018 (Residents arrive Sunday, July 8)

Engineeristas serves as an introductory program to UNH Tech Camp. During this program, campers explore science and engineering by participating in day-long, hands-on activities related to rocketry, animation, mechanical engineering, computer science, robotics, structural engineering, transportation engineering, and more. The curriculum includes field trips to the Browne Center (team building and 21st century social skills) and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation. The campers learn about one or more new topics each day; this is different from the curriculum in Engineeristas Extraordinaire, during which campers work on only one topic at a more in-depth level for an entire week.
(Limit 50 campers)

Cost: $450 commuter, $850 residents

Engineeristas Extraordinaire - Girls Entering Grades 7-10
July 9-13, 2018 (Residents arrive Sunday, July 8)

This program is for girls entering grades 7 through 10 who are ready to work in small groups on a single, week-long, in-depth project. The young women will work on projects related to various areas of science, engineering, and technology. The projects involve rocketry, animation, mechanical engineering, computer science, robotics, structural engineering, transportation engineering, and more.
(Limit 50 campers)

Cost: $450 commuter, $850 residents

TechSplorers A - Boys & Girls Entering Grades 6-8
July 16-20, 2018 and July 23-27, 2018 (Residents arrive Sunday, July 15)

and

TechSplorers B - Boys & Girls Entering Grades 6-8
July 23-27, 2018

(Residents arrive Sunday, July 22)

This program explores electrical, mechanical, civil, structural, and environmental engineering along with robotics, animation, wind energy, nanotechnology and more, through day-long, hands-on activities. The campers learn about one or more new topic each day; this is different from the curriculum in TechVenturers, during which campers work on only one topic at a more in-depth level for an entire week. TechSplorers serves as the co-ed introductory program to UNH Tech Camp.
(Limit 50 campers)

TechVenturers A - Boys & Girls Entering Grades 6-11
July 16-20, 2018 and July 23-27, 2018 (Residents arrive Sunday, July 15 or July 22)

and

TechVenturers B - Boys & Girls Entering Grades 6-11

Campers may attend both weeks to work on multiple projects.

This program is for campers entering grades 6 through 10 who are ready to work on a single, week-long, in-depth project. The campers work on projects related to various areas of science, engineering, and technology. Projects have included rocketry, animation, wind energy, nanotechnology, computer science, 3D printing, robotics, and transportation engineering. Participants engage in the engineering design process, repeated problem solving, and a camp-wide poster session at the end of the week.  The program includes projects for our younger campers, as well as more advanced projects for older campers. (Limit 80 campers)

Cost: $450 commuter, $850 residents

TechLeaders - Boys & Girls Entering Grades 11 & 12
July 16-27, 2018 excluding the weekend (Residents arrive Sundays, July 15 and July 22)

This program features both a camper-selected, two-week long engineering project and leadership and entrepreneurship activities for students considering careers in STEM. The campers participate in workshops on entrepreneurship, research skills, resume writing, interviewing skills, public speaking, and college admissions essay writing.  We will be inviting engineering professionals from industry to meet the Techleaders and discuss engineering careers.  We are currently planning this summer’s projects; we anticipate projects in VEX Robotics, bioengineering, mechanical and electrical engineering, and computer science.
(Limit 20 campers)

Cost: $900 commuter, $1700 residents

The BAE Systems Summer STEM Scholars will be part of the Techleaders program.  These students will work with BAE engineers on various mechanical, electrical, or computer science projects.  Preference will be given to students in Nashua and Manchester.
