UNH Wildcats STEM Day-Save-The-Date-11/2/19

What does sports and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) have in common? It might not be apparent at first glance, but sports are an integral part of the STEM field. Careers in sports sciences are connected with every aspect of sports, from building stadiums, to coaching, video analysis, and designing the fastest formula race car.

Interested in robotics, engineering, life science, mathematics and more? Everyone is welcome to participate in the UNH STEM Day to explore dozens of STEM hands-on activities ranging from designing a banana piano to becoming a citizen scientist to building the fastest mousetrap powered car. Calling all youth and educators to join us and get inspired and bring ideas home with you.

UNH Athletics and the UNH STEM Education Community team-up to celebrate all things STEM.  We invite you to be a part of our new “Cat’s for the Mouse” Mousetrap Car Challenge, along with dozens of interactive STEM Expo activites, which will culminate on Saturday, November 2 before the UNH Football game vs. Villanova.

How to Build a Mousetrap Car (Video)

Participating schools, afterschool programs, 4-H Clubs and other youth organizations will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive a special welcome video of the program from UNH Football players
  • Let kids work in teams to problem solve and build a successful mousetrap car
  • Conduct a competition at the school or organizational level to build excitement
  • Have the UNH mascot or members of the football team be there at the competition

Top performers will be invited to UNH to race their cars on game day but ALL participants will have the opportunity to attend our interactive STEM expo, enjoy the game with a special tickets offer, and be recognized on the video-board during halftime.

More info on this special opportunity will follow, but do not hesitate to reach out with any questions in the meantime.
