PHS Freshman and Sophmore Women Attend Girls Technology Days

Portsmouth senior Danny Oot has submitted a design for the AIANH High School Design Competition, sponsored by the New Hampshire chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Participants were to design an after school Youth Enrichment Center for Manchester, NH. The facility would be dedicated to the development of alternative studies for high school students. The building would share a site with an existing Boys & Girls Club. Specified studies were to include graphic animation, architectural design, and music/video production.

The design submission was to included:

A design presentation board that included the floor plan, an elevation view, a building section, and site plan,

A 1/8” scaled model and,

A one page summary describing how the design satisfies the program requirements and how the Youth Enrichment Center responds to the surrounding environment.

Competition entries will be judged in July and award winners will have their works on display at the annual AIANH Excellence in Architecture Banquet in January 2010.

Danny is a 2-year program completer in Architectural Design and was recently inducted in the National Technical Honor Society. In the fall he will be continuing his study of architecture at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, Ma.

An Interactive Conference for High School Freshmen and Sophomore Women

During the week of March 14, 2016 the NH Department of Education proudly co-sponsored the fourth annual Girls Technology Day, in partnership with the NH Community College System and the New Hampshire High Tech Council. This year the event has continued to expand, to three campuses. The growth of this program reflects the demand for more students to be able to access STEM programming and provides a greater choice of locations. This year’s capacity was for 800 young women to attend a STEM-spirational event that exposed them to many careerand postsecondary opportunities in STEM fields. Events were held on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at NHTI, Concord’s Community College, Thursday, March 17, 2016 at University of New Hampshire- Durham Campus and Friday, March 18, 2016 at Manchester Community College.

Thirty PHS freshman and sophomore women attended Girls Technology Day, March 17, at the University of New Hampshire with Christine MacDonald-Lantz and Kristine Wade from the math department alongwith Pam Wiggin from CTE. The program is intended to provide “STEMspiration to NH’s Next Generation of STEM Leaders”. Following the opening session, students were able to participate in 3 of the 20

workshops offered. Portsmouth students took part in Solar Electrical Installation, Ethernet CableMaking, Exploring Rations in Nature with Technology, Better Glowing Proteins, Nuke 101, Precision Measurements Support STEM and Engineering Analysis and Mechanical Dissection. In addition, students attended a Vendor Fair and met college admissions officers, NH STEM employers and STEM mentors to learn about the future planning resources available to them. At the closing ceremony, Portsmouth High School received an award for perfect attendance; all girls signed up to attend the event were present.
