MANCHESTER, NH — How do you harness wind to produce power? What cleanup process is most effective when an oil spill occurs in a body of water?
Participants will engage in inquiry-based learning—an active form of education through which students pose questions to specific problems or scenarios. It’s a model that encourages curiosity and sparks creativity.
From simulating an environmental disaster to building their own model wind turbines to employing principles of design, control and application by using robots, STEMfest will provide an engaging and fun learning atmosphere.
An added bonus? Instruction from college students—role models who can inspire New Hampshire’s youth to pursue paths in STEM.
Attendees should report to UNH Manchester main entrance at 9:15 a.m. Pick-up is 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
