  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.

  2. East Hill Farm School

    November 5, 2012 - May 28, 2015

    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.

    Do you know a 7th-12th grade teacher who provides excellent mathematics or science instruction to his or her students? Then please consider nominating him or her for a Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). Anyone—researchers, parents, or members of the general public—may nominate a 7th-12th grade teacher by completing the nomination form available on the PAEMST website (www.paemst.org). To submit a nomination, you only need the teacher’s contact information. PAEMST is the highest honor the United States government bestows for K-12 mathematics and science teaching. Since 1983, more than 4,300 teachers have been recognized for their contributions to mathematics and science education. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education. Up to 108 teachers may be recognized each year. Presidential Awardees receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States; a trip for two to Washington, D.C., to attend a series of recognition events, professional development opportunities, and policy-maker meetings; and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation. The Nomination Deadline is April 1, 2015. The Application Deadline is May 1, 2015 for teachers (Grades 7-12). Elementary school teachers (K - Grades 6) are eligible to apply in 2016. If you know more than one teacher deserving of this award, you may submit more than one nomination. Teachers may also initiate the application process themselves at www.paemst.org. Please consider nominating outstanding mathematics or science (including computer science) teachers today! Sincerely, Nafeesa Owens, Ph.D. Program Lead, PAEMST*

  5. UNH District FIRST Robotics Competition

    March 21, 2015 - March 22, 2015

    Location: Whittemore Center Arena, Durham, New Hampshire
    Website: http://www.unh.edu/main/first-robotics

    The varsity Sport for the MindT™, FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Teams are made up of students in grades 9 – 12. This year the University of New Hampshire and FIRST are joining forces to host a two-day head to head qualifying competition. College of Engineering and Physical Sciences faculty, WildCat robotics teams, and UNH staff, business and community partners will be providing their mentorship and skills to this event which supports the importance of hands-on STEM in the curriculum and pre-engineering and technology programming in secondary education. We have almost 40 teams participating from around New England, so far representing New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Connecticut. That’s close to 2,000 team members, their coaches, mentors, families and friends. Join us on Saturday and Sunday - March 21st and 22nd - in the Whittemore Center Arena for this fast paced and exciting event. Come cheer on your hometown school or learn more about robotics at UNH and FIRST programming throughout New England and the United States. This event is free and open to the public.
