Website: http://www.InventioneersPatentScholarship.blogspot.comEstablished 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.

Website: http://www.east-hill-farm.comEast 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.

Website: http://ccom.unh.edu/seaperchSeaPerch is an innovative program which guides students through the building and testing of a small, underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The SeaPerch program provides students with a hands-on learning experience which incorporates robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics. Students will improve teamwork and problem solving skills while learning engineering concepts and technical applications. The provided instruction manuals are broken down into three units of step-by-step instructions which can be taught in an in-school (as complement to existing curricula) or out-of-school setting. Using SeaPerch, adult mentors are able to teach many of the concepts required for their middle and high school STEM standards using a fun, hands-on activity.
