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. Additionally, 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 the outcomes of 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

A micro-internship is an extended or experiential learning opportunity where you will learn about pathways into a specific career area and complete a product or products authentic to the career of interest. The product or deliverable will address common skills and knowledge associated with the career field.  Additionally, you will research the required education, skills, and responsibilities of this chosen career area. The intention is for you to spend time at the workplace with your mentor but if circumstances prevent this, you may work with your VLACS instructor and mentor to complete this virtually.
