NM EPSCoR Education, Outreach & Diversity
GUTC students build computer models and conduct computational science research projects in classes and afterschool programs at middle schools across New Mexico. GUTC provides participating students with the opportunity to envision themselves as future scientists.
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.
NM STEM Connection provides information about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) resources for NM students, teachers, parents, counselors, and administrators as well as higher education faculty/staff as well as community members interested in the promotion of STEM education in New Mexico.
Each year, the STEM Advancement Program (STEMAP) engages students from New Mexico regional universities, community colleges, and tribal colleges in the research funded by New Mexico EPSCoR. During the summer, 10 to 12 students take part in a week of prep workshops at New Mexico Tech then spend seven to eight weeks working with New Mexico EPSCoR-funded faculty and students on cutting edge research that is important to New Mexico. Additionally, students can continue to participate into the academic year for monthly webinars or extended research.

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.
The Undergraduate Visualization and Modeling Network (UVMN) provides professional development for instructors (faculty) and students from Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUI) in the three consortium states—ID, NM, and NV. The UVMN provides an opportunity to engage diverse students in undergraduate research and Cyberinfrastructured-enabled education. The program has three components: a summer workshop, educational module development and implementation, and an on-going virtual community.
