Outreach Coordination

My students and I conduct K-12 STEM outreach events throughout New Mexico that represent the Mechanical Engineering department at New Mexico Tech, as well as New Mexico Tech as a whole.  We provide interactive demos that engage children and adults of all ages and provide information about the opportunities New Mexico Tech offers. Past events have included BBBS Discovery Festival, multiple New Mexico MESA events,  multiple ¡explora! events, and the AFRL Super Stem Saturday. Visit the NMT Outreach page for more information about new events.

We provide dozens of schools across NM with robotics curriculum, supplies, and a NMT student mentor.  At the end of the year we welcome students from the program to campus for a compeition event featuring teams from 6th grade through college.
