Design-Make-Code engages students in exploratory activities to design and prototype their own computing and engineering inventions.
Focusing on collaborative and project work, students will learn how to create mechanical models with simple machines and mechanisms; design digital fashion using the Scratch programming environment; create electronics inventions with littleBits; and control Finch robots to test computational designs.
EXCELL in STEM brings middle school and high school English Language Learners to the UNH Manchester campus and STEM Discovery Lab for a five-week program that combines hands-on science and computing activities with pre-college English Language practice.
Students conduct Biology experiments, solve Computer Science challenges, and take part in STEM-focused field trips, all emphasizing inquiry, observation, analysis of data, design, and coding.
Each STEM leaning activity incorporates English Language tasks in academic reading and research, vocabulary building, writing, listening, and speaking.

Children’s early experiences in science, technology, mathematics and engineering (STEM) play the most important role in a child’s future in contributing to their subsequent academic success.
In the STEM Foundations program, students in grades K-2 learn through the eyes of the Quinks, alien creatures exploring earth for the first time, while learning exciting STEM concepts such as motion, force and materials through hands-on learning experiences.
