About White Mountain Science, Inc. (WMSI)

Started in 2013, WMSI supports Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education in both formal (schools) and informal (everything else) settings for the curious and inventive individual in us all, regardless of age.  We are also developers for STEAM curriculum and technology.

Currently, we offer learning opportunities and development work in areas that leverage easy to use robotics and measurement equipment, low cost computing and electronics, computer coding,and rapid prototyping (3D printing and LASER cutting).

About our staff

Executive Director:  William Church

Bill Church received his BS in Physics from Binghamton University in 1992.  He received his MAT in Curriculum and Instruction from Cornell in 1997.  He received his MS in Mechanical Engineering from Tufts University in 2014.  Bill has worked in and with public schools for twenty years.  His passion is for supporting learning through projects.  Through his career, Bill has collaborated on many educational projects and programs with a wide range of local, regional, and national schools, organizations and businesses including NH SAU 35, NH SAU 84, North Country Educational Services, New Hampshire Science Teachers Association, Plymouth State University, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation's Christa McAuliffe program; Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach, Lemelson MIT's InvenTeams, iCreate to Educate, Sparkfun Electronics, LEGO Education, and National Instruments.


Aaron Goldman:

Aaron Goldman is the Director of After-School Youth Programs and Summer Camps at WMSI.  He recently graduated from Champlain College with a Bachelor's in Game Design, specializing in Sound and Narrative Design.  His goals are to help design educational games and other instructional tools for a wide range of learning environments.  Aaron also enjoys freelancing video game and TV soundtracks, as well as writing scripts and stories for television and video games. In his free time Aaron enjoys fabricating and working on his collection of classic cars.

Pat Hampson:

Raised and currently residing in Littleton, NH, when not attending the University of New Hampshire, Pat is a junior physics student. He has gained experience in both the experimental and theoretical fields among his studies in Durham, with time spent working in a Nuclear Physics lab and independently studying the theoretical physics of black holes. He is currently undecided on what specialty is best suited for his path but intends to continue his journey among physics academia. Some of his leisurely activities include hiking, biking, camping, astronomy, photography and most anything else in the wilderness.


Nick Sullo:

Nick grew up in Bethlehem, NH and is now attending Northeastern University for a dual major in Electrical and Computer Engineering. This will be Nick's second year working with WMSI on the summer camps and he is ready to have a blast! Nick has also worked on a vending machine project with Sparkfun Electronics, and has volunteered in programs teaching STEM concepts to high school students at Northeastern. When not working with WMSI, Nick enjoys building robots, gardening, and woodworking.

 

Ethan Peters: 

Ethan took part in STOMP camps at Bethlehem Elementary, finding full circle, years later in an internship at White Mountain Science, Inc. which through communication with Sparkfun, fostered the opportunity to explore an individual research and development project. Initially pursuing neuroscience, Ethan is now studying computational mathematics and the University of New Hampshire. Through WMSI, Ethan has developed curriculum and taught educational summer camps spanning topics from LEGO robotics to programming and 3D design. In his free time Ethan enjoys the works of Ezra Pound and Rumi, number theory, conversational hikes and writing.
