Overview

The remote UNH Tech Camp Micro-Internship offering extends your learning into the real world as you perform tasks preparing you for STEM careers. You will research a particular career field, including the various pathways into a specific career, and use your work produced at camp as an authentic product or deliverable to demonstrate your understanding of tasks associated with this career. UNH Tech Camp is offered by the UNH College of Engineering and Physical Sciences and makes available the benefits of a research campus to the community.

 

Major Topics and Concepts

This program will focus on a weeklong, in-depth project centered on unraveling a murder mystery using forensic science. The case involves celebrity detective Inspector Gadget, whose body has been found in a rooftop garden. Campers will employ classic forensic techniques such as fingerprinting and ink chromatography, plus a few new ones like cipher and footprint analysis, to help us solve this crime!
