    Established in 2010, the Inventioneers' Patent Scholarship program provides patent scholarships to student inventors ages 8-16. Each scholarship, valued at $3,000, includes working with an intellectual property attorney to create and file a provisional patent application to give the students' invention patent pending status (and patent protection) for one year. In addition to the patent scholarship, the program provides education about the patent process and a planned intellectual property curriculum for young inventors. Since 2007, the Inventioneers, a youth-run organization and a non-profit public charity, has been dedicated to promoting STEM education nationwide.

    The New Hampshire Girls Math circle is a non-profit organization established by Nashua sisters Nisha and Ankita Devasia to support and encourage an interest in mathematics among young girls. Our aim is to promote interest in mathematics at a young age so that girls will be encouraged to pursue STEM fields. Gaining confidence in mathematics a key factor in this because math is so essential to all STEM related subjects. Girls who are interested in mathematics should not be discouraged by the outdated stereotypes that claim (falsely) that boys are better at math. We will be running a summer math program from August 24th to August 28th from 9 AM - 12 PM (the week before school starts for the Nashua public school district) at Fairgrounds Middle School in Nashua. The camp is open to girls entering 6th to 9th grade who would like an introduction to basic algebra or basic geometry. A placement test will be given on the first day of class to assess which level the girls are at. The camp is completely free of charge; all we ask is that you come eager to learn! To register, visit us at www.nhgirlsmath.org.
