UNH Tech Camp is a set of summer programs for students entering grades 5-12 designed to increase STEM literacy. The programs engage students in interactive, hands-on, problem solving activities in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Offered through the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Tech Camp provides students with access to state-of-the-art facilities, advanced technology, and award-winning faculty. Since its beginning, Tech Camp has fostered a diverse and inclusive community, making STEM education available to all curious learners.

The Dinah Whipple STEAM Academy is an immersive educational program that explores science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM), as well as the Black experience for students entering Grades 7-12. It is offered through UNH Tech Camp, which has been providing dynamic, experiential summer programs for middle and high school students for more than a decade.

We are excited to announce this program will be offered at no cost to participants! This includes on-campus housing for the week. This is made possible by the generous support of Appledore Marine Engineering, LLC.
