Thank You to Our Wonderful
Exhibitors, Volunteers, and Sponsors
for making NH TechFest 2013 a Sucess!
To all of our visitors - we hope that you had an opportunity to train Baxter, build a bridge, measure your eyes, test drive a few robots, learn about the more naturally functional new prosthetic limbs, and watch our crazy Trebuchet competition.
NH TechFest is all about STEM
New Technologies Demand
New Skills… Your Skills
- what are the jobs of the future? are you prepared?
- what do you need - tech schools vs college?
- could you be replaced by a robot?
You need STEM more than you know – come find out
Science / Technology / Engineering / Mathematics
This is the background of all of the innovations that you rely on everyday!
- could you survive without your cell phone?
- find your way without GPS?
- do research without the Internet?
- watch your favorite TV program on "delay"
- play a video game with friends far away?
