ConVal Students Attend Girls Technology Day (GTD) at NHTI

On Wednesday March 18, New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI), Concord’s Technical Community College, hosted the third annual Girls Technology Day (GTD), an initiative of the New Hampshire Department of Education’s Career Development Bureau.  More than a dozen students from ConVal attended.

Governor Maggie Hassan gave the opening speech. The students heard from two keynote speakers: Cindy Brown, a former senior executive at Yahoo who is now a senior vice president at Dyn, a cloud-based internet performance company based in Manchester, NH; and Meghan Haidul, Fire Protection Engineer for the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant.

The rest of the day consisted of a series of hands-on workshops exploring various high technology topics.  Students attended sessions on a broad range of topics, including:

  • Submarine Escape
  • Mechanical Dissection
  • Design and Build Interesting Structures from Gumdrops and Toothpicks
  • Game Programming with Greenfoot
  • 3D Modeling
  • Ethernet Cable Building
  • VEX Robotics Demonstration
  • App Development
  • Balancing Air within the HVAC Industry
  • Graphicast – Memory Training
  • Applications Development
  • Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing
  • Precision Measurements
  • Cable Car Challenge
  • Hard Drive Dissection
  • Engineered Composites

The workshops were led by educators and business leaders from various New Hampshire universities, community colleges and industries.

During their lunch break, the students attended a technology exhibition in the NHTI gym.  Featured exhibitors included several area colleges, high-tech businesses, including defense contractors such as BAE Systems and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
