For the past four summers, I have visited our STEMAP students at the midpoint of their research experiences at UNM, NMT and NMSU. Over lunch the students share their experiences. For some it is their very first research experience, for others it is the first time they have been given a chance to explore their own research question.

This July, I had lunch with our fourth and final STEMAP cohort for Energize NM. 12 students from across NM make up our most diverse cohort yet.
