HANOVER, N.H. — ERDC's Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) recently entered into an Educational Partnership Agreement (EPA) with New Hampshire's Kearsarge Regional School District.
Located in New London, the district serves approximately 2,000 students in seven central New Hampshire towns and boasts a 0.1 percent dropout rate, with 75 percent of its students going on to higher education.
The EPA is a program under which a Department of Defense laboratory works with an educational institution to encourage and enhance study in scientific disciplines at all levels of education.
Kearsarge administration, teachers and students can now look forward to support and collaboration with CRREL to include visits, connections with the lab's researchers and scientists, potential mentoring relationships and expertise, and equipment and technology to foster Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.
The laboratory currently supports numerous districts and/or schools throughout central New Hampshire and Vermont and focuses its interaction through ERDC's STEM initiative.
