We'd like to sincerely thank everyone who donated to the Leitzel Center during the 603 Challenge this year. It was a very successful campaign!! We will put your support to work toward providing more resources where they are needed in the coming year for teacher professional development or new youth STEM learning opportunities. Thank you!

I want to support the Leitzel Center

Our Mission

The Joan and James Leitzel Center for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering Education at UNH works to transform education in mathematics, science, and engineering in elementary and secondary schools and in non-formal settings through high quality research, carefully examined practice, and interdisciplinary collaboration.

We facilitate partnerships and initiate programs with the goal of developing educators' knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering concepts, along with human learning strategies—developing learners who experience the joy of discovery and the challenge of understanding; providing learning environments that support active engagement.
