NM STEM-H Connection

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.

By providing a single, searchable site for the rich diversity of STEM related opportunities in New Mexico, NM STEM Connection will help more New Mexicans of all ages and all areas of the state to explore and develop their interests in STEM. NM STEM Connection is managed by the UNM STEM-H Center for Outreach, Research and Education (STEM-H CORE) with support from the New Mexico Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (NM EPSCoR).
