Hartford Courant (July 28): “Hands-On Learning At Engineering Camp In New Haven"
At UNH's "engineering camp," 25 high school students from across Connecticut worked in teams to build prototypes of helicopter wings, wind turbines and space vehicles. The process is essential to an engineer's work, UNH Engineering Professor Maria-Isabel Carnasciali said. "What they're learning is to prototype something, see how it works and make it better. It gets them to understand things don't always work the first time. That's what real life engineering is all about."
