A Culture of Innovation

Role Models in STEM

logos for Manchester Historic Association, SEE Science Center and New Hampshire Humanities

In collaboration with the Manchester Historic Association, the SEE Science Center presents these short oral histories of individuals working Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) with connections to Manchester, NH.  We hope these diverse stories will allow today’s students, to see themselves as part of a growing and vibrant city and to consider local STEM career opportunities. This project was made possible with support from New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities.

After reviewing these resources, please answer this short 5 question survey to help us to continue to improve our offerings.
