Due to the public health concern caused by the COVID-19 virus, UNH administration made the decision to cancel all UNH Cooperative Extension events, programs and noncredit classes through May. The health and safety of our staff and the many members of our New Hampshire communities that participate in our programs is most important. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.

The new date will be posted here as soon as possible and announced in our newsletter (sign up). 


About the workshop:

In a world where we are more connected than ever, diseases can spread rapidly! You will become biomedical engineers as we explore how to prepare for outbreaks of highly contagious diseases. We will use the Engineering Design Process to design an antiviral to stop a newly discovered virus from infecting a model cell. 

This is a fun and exciting introduction into the world of biomechanical engineering. The workshop is appropriate for adults and volunteers who work with youth in out-of-school time or classrooms.  Content most appropriate for youth ages 5th-9th, but can be adapted as needed. 

Please contact Sarah Grosvenor for more information or for a scholarship information.
