Hampstead Academy is proud to announce that we are participating in the Northern New England Young Inventor’s Program (YIP). This nationally recognized program is a K-12 project-based learning experience that provides hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) educational opportunities for youth. YIP combines many of the skills that we have been learning in the areas of science, social studies, writing, art, and math.
This invention program promotes analytical and creative thinking and problem solving. Each student will develop an original idea for an invention and take it from an idea, to a completed design. We will celebrate their accomplishments with a school-wide Invention Fair at 6 PM on Wednesday, March 4th, where students will display and present their projects to judges and the community. Winners from the in-school competition will go on to compete at the Northern New England Young Inventors' Convention at SNHU on March 28th!
