Making Effective Academic Posters: the #BetterPoster Approach

Scientific posters haven't changed in 30 years, which should be alarming to you (nothing in science should be stagnant). And evidence suggests they are incredibly ineffective. In this talk, you will learn the evidence-based design principles that science has discovered in the last 30 years (since the birth of the Internet) and how you can apply them to create fully-modern scientific posters that transmit your knowledge much more effectively to other scientists, and help you and them have more fun at poster sessions too.

New Mexico Science Fiesta 2020

A Week-Long Celebration of Science!

The NM Science Fiesta is a virtual week-long celebration of science for kids, teens, and adults. Take a virtual road trip through New Mexico and explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math and the roles they play in shaping our culture and the future of New Mexico.

SACNAS: Navigating Uncomfortable Situations

Let's get comfortable talking about the uncomfortable! In this webinar four former community college students will share uncomfortable situations they experienced on their path through STEM, including systemic discrimination, navigating higher education while being part of a historically excluded group, and other challenges. Following the panel, this webinar will create a safe space for participants to ask questions and discuss their personal experiences. Panelists will then share solutions on how to navigate uncomfortable situations moving forward.

New Mexico’s Climate Strategy and Electricity Sector Implications

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued Executive Order 2019-003 on climate change in January 2019. This order established the New Mexico Interagency Climate Change Task Force and included several policy directives for state agencies to implement. This presentation will give an overview of the 2019 New Mexico Climate Strategy report produced in response to EO 2019-003. We will also cover legislative and regulatory updates from the past few months and provide additional depth and detail on strategy and planned action in the electricity sector.

STEM Advancement Program (STEMAP): Student Presentations & Virual Poster Session

Please join us for the 2020 STEMAP student presentations and virtual poster session!

STEMAP engages students from NM’s regional universities, community colleges, and tribal colleges in NM SMART Grid Center research and training. Students spend 8-weeks working under the direction of faculty mentors at NMSU, NMT, and UNM. The NM SMART Grid Center, an interdisciplinary National Science Foundation (NSF) project, is pursuing research and workforce training for next-generation electric power production and delivery.

Distributed Energy Workforce – Virtual Summit

The Distributed Energy Workforce at Santa Fe Community College is pleased to announce the Virtual Summit on emerging workforce training opportunities in Distributed Energy Systems.

SFCC’s Smart and Microgrid Training Center has established a program and hired a full-time faculty member to develop curricula, degrees, and certifications in this critical aspect of grid modernization.

Join us to learn about this program, the broader opportunities, and how all New Mexico educational institutions can share and cooperate to maximize the potential.
