The purpose of the New Hampshire Science and Engineering Exposition Association (NHSEEA) is the advancement of science education in the State of New Hampshire. The Association intends to do this in two ways. First, through an initiative called the New Hampshire Science and Engineering Exposition, which includes the NH High School Science Fair. Secondly, the Association collaborates with businesses, with communities, and with the state’s colleges and universities.
The Exposition is intended to give Granite State students the opportunity to do science related activities, and to choose whether they do them as inquiring scientists, engineers, or technicians. Students then communicate their results through an appropriate combination of journals, posters, equipment, and interviews.
Additionally, in collaboration with other organizations, NHSEEA seeks to expand interest in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. As students interact with mentors and judges, they will get a closer look at these fields as possible careers.
The New Hampshire Science & Engineering Expo Association (NHSEEA), proud sponsor of the NH High School Science Fair, wants to engage both student s and teachers in hands-on science, engineering and math projects to encourage students to learn and develop the process skills necessary to design and perform experimental procedures.
It has long been known that the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) are not truly attracting enough students to meet the needs of the future. We want to help change that statistic by setting up partnerships within the business community to provide mentoring opportunities for our students while they are doing their engineering projects or independent research.
What better way is there for students to showcase the STEM proficiencies they have used to create solutions to real-world problems than at a Science Fair? NHSEEA wants to help all students become part of the science fair system as their entry onto the pathway to college and beyond.
