The University of New Hampshire is a leader in the state and region in training the future workforce in the exciting STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

 

In 2012, officials from the University System of New Hampshire and the Community College System of New Hampshire committed to double the number of STEM-educated graduates from their institutions by 2025.

As the largest public institution in the state, UNH will be the primary driver of that increase. In 2013, UNH graduated nearly 900 students in STEM majors.

Participants describe how the event reaches diverse audiences, their ability to connect students from different demographics and how participation in the symposia has shown to increase student self-efficacy in the science practices. “Since the project began in 2015, the GLOBE Program’s Student Research Symposia has provided 776 students with the opportunity to...

  STEM Pipeline

UNH is taking the long view on STEM education by introducing kids as young as age seven to science and technology with summer programs, internships, and hands-on fun. And in partnerships with the Community College System of New Hampshire, we've smoothed the pathway from two-year to four-year degrees in STEM fields.

 

 

 

 

 

"The balloon project involved a lot of different aspects of science, from electronics to space physics. I like the responsibility that the project demanded of each of us, it made it feel very real and very important, and like it was our experiment."

Nick LaJoie, Project SMART participant and senior at Concord High School
