    10.01.14 - STEM Majors on the Rise: The Numbers Tell the Story
    When the school year began earlier this month, the University of New Hampshire welcomed some 3,400 first-year students, more than 1,000 of whom enrolled in majors in the STEM science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) disciplines. It’s the largest incoming STEM class in UNH history—and a significant step forward in the university's commitment to double the number of STEM students it graduates by 2025.

    UNH ocean mappers discover seamount in Pacific Ocean
    Where on Earth could a 3,000-foot mountain hide? On the bottom of the sea – an area about which we know less than the surface of the Moon. That’s where UNH scientists on a seafloor mapping mission discovered a new seamount near the Johnson Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. The summit of the geological feature rises 1,100 meters from the 5,100-meter-deep ocean floor.

    What a sub-social bee can tell us about evolutionary biology
    What’s going on inside your rose stems might surprise you. Open one up and you might find an insect, or two or three, in various stages of growth, nestled within the walls. The entire lifecycle of the small carpenter bee, for example, occurs inside the dead stems of roses and other woody plants such as sumac and raspberries.
