Calling all future Engineers!!
The Summer Experience is a week long engineering and science academy offered by the Tagliatela College of Engineering. Participants in the program discover the excitement of working on engineering and science projects in a University Environment. UNH faculty and staff lead a variety of activities. Some of the activities in the past have included:
Computer Science: Discover how to write your own computer software! Make your own version of well-known video games and write the code for your own app. Participants will learn how to use free tools so they can continue the projects after the program.
Aeronautics: Learn how airplanes fly! Spend time investigating the shapes of wings and airfoils and how different designs affect the way they fly.
Alternate Energy: Learn how renewable energy works! Construct your own solar panel tracker.
Civil Engineering: Learn how to make your own concrete! Spend time mixing concrete and then test to see how much force it can take before it breaks up.
Other activity areas:
- Forensic Science
- Cyber Security
Participants will have an opportunity to learn about careers in engineering through these hands-on activities and many more.
UNH faculty and staff supervise all classroom and project work. They have outstanding backgrounds in many different areas of engineering, technology, and science, combined with a genuine interest in working with young people who show an aptitude for science, math, engineering, and technology.
