  1. The Inventioneers Ready, Set, PATENT! Scholarship

    August 31, 2012 - December 31, 2017

    Location: New Hampshire
    Website: http://www.InventioneersPatentScholarship.blogspot.com

    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.

    Location: 460 Monadnock Street, Troy, New Hampshire
    Website: http://www.east-hill-farm.com

    East Hill Farm School was designed to provide students with a meaningful, hands on farm experience where they can learn life long skills related to animal husbandry, sustainability, and farm to table concepts. Students will engage in small and large group activities learning about the Farm, its animals and what it takes to keep the Farm functioning. Our farmers will lead your students in daily chores, farm work and workshops throughout your stay. Students will experience hands on how to properly feed the animals, clean the barns and maintain the farm facilities. We feel these practices will educate the students about the responsibilities and skills essential to farm life. Our farmers have many years of experience working with children and families, ages 2-80. They are passionate about passing on their knowledge to all who pass through their barn. East Hill Farm is committed to safety of all visitors. Our staff is trained in First Aid and CPR. We provide a healthy environment including home cooked nutritious food. In addition to the scheduled activities, we also have an indoor swimming pool, a pond with paddle boats and row boats, nature hiking trails developed by UNH Cooperative Extension and we are located at the foot of Mt. Monadnock. Your stay can be customized to accommodate individual student needs as well as school curriculum.

  5. Water Topics for Teachers

    July 30, 2013 - July 31, 2014

    Location: 1164 Bunker Hill Road, South Tamworth, New Hampshire
    Website: http://www.agwt.org/

    The program will provide a unique opportunity for teachers and educators to explore aspects of water that are relevant to New Hampshire. Water science and water management experts from the water industry and government agencies will be presenting the program. We recognize that teachers in all grades must adhere to state standards for content and required learning objectives, and so our approach, through class sessions, demonstrations, discussions and handouts, is to demonstrate how to integrate water topic subject matter into existing curricula. The program will show that exciting and practical "water science" can be applied to many traditional subject areas.
