Location: New Hampshire
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.

Location: University of New Hampshire, Durham, New Hampshire
Website: http://gss.unh.edu/The Graduate Certificate in Geospatial Science (GSS) at the University of New Hampshire is a multidisciplinary program designed to provide graduate level education in the applied and theoretical technology and applications of geospatial science. Students within the program are afforded the opportunity to build their five course requirement certificate from a variety of required and elective classes from different disciplines to best fit their academic, research, or professional interests. The flexibility of this program makes the program ideal for a student looking to complement their degree or a professional looking to build knowledge, skill and credentials within the Geospatial Sciences.

Website: https://stemscouts.org/DEVELOP SKILLS The experiments in STEM labs are a chance to be creative, develop your leadership, problem-solving, teamwork and communications skills and learn to think like a STEM professional. BUILD A CAREER STEM Scouts helps pave the way for an exciting future career. STEM jobs are projected to grow 17 percent by 2018, and STEM salaries average 26 percent more than salaries for non-STEM jobs. PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE Interaction with STEM professionals, research skills and the opportunity to publish your work in a peer-reviewed journal all increase your chances for college scholarships. LEARN BY DOING You will see how real people in real companies use hands-on experiments like the ones you do in the STEM lab to invent new technologies, machines, medicines and ideas that change lives.

Enhancing engagement with CCSS MP3: Developing students’ capacity to "construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others”
September 29, 2015 - November 24, 2015
Location: University of New Hampshire , Durham , New Hampshire
Website: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1wNTw0OoehInd1XB_KWFQTOnuIEf4ua0wDS-BzWTdoh8/vie...Common Core State Standard for Mathematical Practice #3 – Constructing mathematical arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others – outlines a set of competencies that mathematically proficient students must exhibit: making and testing conjectures, using deductive reasoning and evaluating arguments. Developing such competencies is a complex process. We have designed a collection of mathematical lessons, which utilize the core content of secondary Algebra and Geometry curricula, to engage students in practices that promote their capacity to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. The lessons are intended to be naturally integrated across the curriculum, rather than form a separate unit. Could your students benefit from this? Would you like to examine and test these materials and provide UNH researchers with your opinion on them? If so, this professional development opportunity is for you! You will have the opportunity to: • Learn about different task prototypes that promote students’ engagement with reasoning and proving. • Provide feedback on the collection of lessons. • Brainstorm how your students could benefit from such activities. • Adapt the task types to your own practice. • Collaborate with colleagues and faculty at UNH. What does the participation involve? • 9 weekly meetings held on UNH campus in Durham. Please make sure you can commit to participating in all meetings. • Meetings will be held on Tuesdays, September 29, 2015 through November 24, 2015, 4 – 6 pm. • You will receive $150 stipend to cover travel expenses. Parking and refreshments will be provided. • CEU credits available. How to apply? Go to http://tinyurl.com/os4xvl5 and complete a short survey about your name, grade-level and courses you teach, the best way to communicate with you. Please Note: This PD is limited to 10 participants, so make sure you don’t miss this opportunity! If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Orly Buchbinder at email@example.com.
