Plymouth State University, Museum of the White Mountains

In its newest exhibition, Plymouth State University’s Museum of the White Mountains explores connections between geological history and recreation in the White Mountains. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Garlick, a New Hampshire-based writer and science educator.

The exhibition features ultra-high resolution panoramic photographs (Gigapans) of Cannon Cliff, the Franconia Ridge and the east side of Mt. Washington. These panoramas span nearly entire walls of the gallery and are featured in a touch-screen digital exhibit.

The exhibition includes topics like the connection of a geologic event such as a landslide and how that event precipitates activities such as backcountry skiing and ice climbing. It also explains the impact of the Ice Age on the region, and the science behind the formation and eventual destruction of the Old Man of the Mountain.

The museum, located at 34 Highland Street in Plymouth, is open for regular hours Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; Wednesday 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public for self-guided tours. Contact Libby Griffiths at (603) 535-3210 or to discuss and schedule group visits.

PSU Campus

The purpose of this residential program for young writers entering grades 9-12 is to create a community of writers to share in the art of writing.

Together we will read as writers and explore genres of writing, including poetry, prose and memoir. Participants will partake in writing activities that will help strengthen their craft through quick writes, prompts, revision exercises and conferencing with both instructors and peers. Young writers will have the opportunity to experience collaborative work with members of the other writing camps on campus, as well as the NWPNH Summer Institute for teachers.

Students will stay in a PSU dormitory supervised by program counselors and participate in evening activities. Activities may include: ice-skating, open mic or movie nights, trips to downtown, visiting authors and hikes/walks.

Families will be invited to hear the writing created at the Institute during an open mic celebration on Friday afternoon.

"The Journey Begins With A Journal"

The National Writing Project in New Hampshire (formerly known as the Plymouth Writing Project) is dedicated to improving the teaching of writing in our nation’s schools. Since 2002, we have offered summer institutes for the best teachers of writing in the state. Each summer we offer unique day camp experiences specifically for young writers.

This camp will allow children to explore journals in many forms. We will use book and papermaking techniques to create journals for quotes, poetry, and art. For our nature journal we will record our observations outdoors and undertake a recycled art and writing project. Also, integrating writing, art, technology, and science, we will create an electrifyingly fun journal that contains actual working circuits and LED lights!
