Natives In STEM

Natives In STEM


Natives in STEM is a new collaborative project between NM EPSCoR and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. The project aims to increase Native American identity and sense of belonging in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) by creating and sharing positive images and stories of Native STEM professionals. Images will be presented as posters and stories will be shared through the NativesInSTEM.org website.

Teachers Guide to the Valles Caldera

Teachers Guide to the Valles Caldera: The Science


Over a million years ago a supervolcano exploded in northern New Mexico, sending over 300 cubic kilometers of ash into the atmosphere and leaving behind a crater over 12 miles in diameter. This extraordinary crater is called the Valles Caldera and in the year 2000 became the Valles Caldera National Preserve. The website, Teacher’s Guide to Valles Caldera: The Science, connects teachers and students to the research taking place in the Valles Caldera and help them uncover the crosscutting concepts that drive the Earth's systems. Read more about the Teachers guide to the Valles Caldera at http://vcnpearthsystems.nmepscor.net.
