On Thursday, March 14th, 2013 (better known as “Pi day”) Professor Mihaela Sabin and Michael Jonas will be holding two workshops at Girls Technology Day. The event is being held for the first time, and will be taking place at the New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord. Over 200 girls, grades 8-10, are expected to participate in the event. Catherine Blake, Lecturer in Marketing from the University of New Hampshire who received her M.B.A from Harvard University, will be the keynote speaker. The event will host ten workshops, of which the girls can choose four (including Cybersecurity, VEX Robotics, Careers in Technolgy Round Table, Cisco VoIP Lab, Making Ethernet Cables 101, and more) to experience first-hand what it is like to use a variety of different technologies in computing and engineering.
Students participating in Sabin and Jonas’s workshops can look forward to programming a multiplayer board game in the Greenfoot interactive Java development environment, and creating their own mobile apps for the Android operating system.

The University of New Hampshire at Manchester and the Nashua Community College joined forces yesterday to provide new opportunities for engineering students. The agreement, effective January 2011, will allow NCC students the option of dual admission into NCC and the UNH Manchester Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology Program. Students at NCC will earn an Associate degree in either Computer Engineering Technology or Electronic Engineering Technology and continue their coursework at UNH Manchester to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering Technology in either the Electrical or Computer Engineering Technology track.
The agreement is similar to one established with the New Hampshire Technical Institute, Concord’s Community College. Beginning in 2003, students at NHTI have the option of dual admission into UNH Manchester’s Engineering Technology program. And, beginning in 2008, students from NHTI’s Information Technology Program also have the opportunity for dual admission to UNH Manchester’s computer information systems program. More than 160 students have taken advantage of the agreement since 2003.
