Shaheen's grant program will help make the same experiences available for more young people.
Getting students excited about science
The updated facility, said NCC President Lucille Jordan, has changed the kind of education the college is able to give students. And by showing them what a job in the manufacturing field will actually be like, the college has attracted more individuals to the program.
The work being done by the Community College System of New Hampshire, she said, is a good example of the work needed throughout the country: providing high quality facilities for students to learn and working together with local businesses to inform curriculum and find jobs for graduates.
available for us," Beauregard said. "But FIRST really helps us see what's available."
But after a little convincing, she managed to get six of them to sign up for the Merrimack High School FIRST team this school year. Next year, the high school sophomore said, they're all hoping to have an even more hands on role.

with local students, school and city officials, to talk about the proposed Inspiration Innovation School Grant Program, and introduce the new Senate STEM Education and Workforce Caucus.
"We have young people already doing amazing work in our schools," Conrad said. "We just need a lot more of them."
"There's so many jobs available that people just don't know about," she said. "You hear people talking about a lack of jobs, well, a lot of those are low paying jobs. There are a lot of engineering opportunities out there that people don't realize. There are so many ways to improve our economy and our country."
"This is really an opportunity to get the Senate more focused on what we need to do to create an educated workforce," Shaheen said, standing in the community college's advanced manufacturing lab. "We need to be supportive of initiatives at the local level, for schools to have hands on learning. Students are more likely to get excited about STEM subjects, and go on and work in those fields if they have these opportunities when they're young."
To do that, Shaheen said, the education world needs to start getting students excited in science and math at an earlier age, using programs like FIRST and other initiatives, which could be funded under her proposed legislation.
The NCC manufacturing laboratory was updated over the past year with the help of a federal grant provided to the community college system. The new lab, officially re opened in February, features 3D printers and other manufacturing equipment used in today's factories.
Now, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is hoping she can help get more young women interested in science and technology, sponsoring legislation to create a grant program for innovative initiatives, like FIRST, in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields.
Nashua Superintendent Mark Conrad said the city has been working hard to do just that.
One of the major obstacles facing the advancement of STEM education, Conrad said, is students' math skills. Too many students are going into high school without the basic skills they need to move on to more advanced studies in science and math, he said.
They've both learned a lot from their participation in FIRST, gaining the experience that comes with hands on learning, Lacy said, and are hopeful Michael Kors Xl Tote
Still, Shaheen said the work done at the college level isn't enough to ensure the state has the educated workforce it needs for a strong economy in the years to come.
Not only did a Nashua girl win the 3M national Young Scientist Challenge in 2012, for her work using solar energy to purify water, a group of Nashua North students were one of only 16 teams across the country to win a grant from MIT, letting them create a bacteria powered battery that could provide electricity to impoverished villages.
City schools have been focusing more on math education to combat that issue, taking part in a national pilot this year that creates math instruction based on students' natural learning progressions. And it's clear that the district's work is paying off, Conrad said.
The grant program Michael Kors Ipad Mini Case would target nontraditional programs, such as robotics competitions, and efforts that would broaden access to science and technology education. The caucus, co chaired by Shaheen, will raise awareness of STEM education to improve the country's economic prosperity and competitiveness around the world.
New Hampshire is expected to need about 43,000 STEM workers by 2018, she said. Without doing more to interest young women who currently make up only about 23 percent of the nation's STEM workforce reaching those numbers won't be possible.
Nashua students Brittany Lacy and Kyle Bergeron, seniors involved in FIRST at Nashua South, said they're glad to see state and national leaders interested in getting more students involved in STEM activities.
