DURHAM — Registration has opened for Tech Camp at the University of New Hampshire, a set of day and residential summer programs for students entering grades six through 12 designed to increase STEM literacy.
BAE Systems, which has its Electronic Systems sector headquartered in Nashua, provided a $25,000 grant for the program.
The BAE Systems Summer STEM Scholars initiative will provide financial support for 10 students to attend Tech Leaders, a two-week section of Tech Camp for students considering careers in STEM fields.
Eligible students need to be entering their junior or senior year of high school in the fall. Preference will be given to students from Nashua and Manchester.
The Tech Leaders session, which runs July 16-27, features both a camper-selected engineering project and leadership and entrepreneurship activities for students considering careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math.)
The campers participate in workshops on entrepreneurship, research skills, resume writing, interviewing skills, public speaking, and college admissions essay writing.
In addition, engineering professionals from industry, including BAE Systems, will discuss engineering careers.
Both day and residential programs are available.
