Volunteer to Help Support Young Scientists and Engineers
"Imagine, standing by a pool hearing, "Go, go, go!" from excited youth as they pilot their oddly shaped underwater object through a timed obstacle course."
This team competion is one of many held by Cooperative Extension's Science Team and its volunteers.
Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in a young person's life. And it's also a lot of fun!

Inquiry Teaching Methods
Children's Museum of New Hampshire

This inquiry-based learning is an approach that involves exploring the natural and man-made world around us in a manner that leads to questioning, observing, investigating, testing and discussing what results were found. This approach is modeled on the theory and vision of the Next Generation Science Standards to integrate science and engineering practices within the STEM disciplines.
