Learning and Summer Fun at NECC

Help turn the “dog days” of summer (July and August) into the best days for your child by enrolling them in one or more of NECC’s one-week summer courses for kids.

Along with many creative arts classes the program provides great opportunities for hands-on exploration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Students engage in learning investigations both indoors and outside on the NECC Haverhill campus.

Lessons are age appropriate with participants placed in one of two groups:

  • Juniors: Grades 2-4, (ages 7-10)
  • Seniors: Grades 5-7, (ages 10-13)

NECC will also be offering a summer program for teenagers (13 – 16 years old). Check out the STEM Academy page for more information.
