Free Event During School Vacation Week

Unfortunately, due to lack of interest we are cancelling the 6th & 7th Grade STEMbassador event during school vacation. However, we have increased the age range for the Design a Theme Park Ride event, and increased the number of kids we can accept. See below for a full description:

Design a Theme Park Ride is an activity for 4th & 7th graders:
Thursday, February 25 @ 1pm

In groups, students will design a theme park ride that will drop as fast as possible while keeping riders safely inside the ride using various materials provided. There will be other constraints to make the design activity challenging. With the help of UNH engineers, students will learn the various steps required for good engineering - ask, imagine, build, test, and improve. This activity will address mechanical engineering, designing, teamwork, and time management.

This event is limited to 25 students so sign-up is necessary. Sign-up  in-person, by phone (603-516-6050), or online.

This event is generously sponsored by the STEMbassadors from the University of New Hampshire's College of Engineering and Physical Sciences.
