Online Resources

We are here to be a resource for you. Check out our:

Educator Workshops: We will occasionally offer educator workshops by partnering with local educational institutions or businesses. Sign up for our educator enewsletter to stay up to date!

STEM Video Challenge Series: We've created a series of video challenges related to S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning. Each short video focuses on a specific concept.

Our Exhibits as Curriculum Connections: Our exhibits here at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire are great for hands-on learning to help drive home a lesson learned in the classroom.

Free Downloadable Resources: We have developed and gathered great curriculum guides which can be used to prepare you for a visit or help supplement a visit.

Each short video focuses on a specific concept and invites students to watch and try out their own ideas in the classroom or on their own. Be watching for new vides on our YouTube channel!

Simple Machines

In this STEM Challenge, we learn all about Simple Machines with Lead Educator Meredith Lamothe.

Forces & Motion

In this STEM Challenge, we use the test track in our Thinkering Lab exhibit to learn about force, motion, inclined planes and wheels!

How do machines and vehicles react on different surface conditions?

What if we change the size of the wheels?

What if our surface is flat vs. an inclined plane?

Intended for Grades K-4

The Physics of Flight

In this STEM Challenge, we use our 40-foot Build It, Fly It exhibit to learn about the physics of flight!

Which shapes are the most aerodynamic?

Why are some animals and modes of transportation more aerodynamic than others?

Using this knowledge, can you create a design that you think would work best for launching and flying?

Intended for Grades K-3
