Step out of the classroom this summer and experience STEM opportunities in a stimulating environment with students, professors, research, scientists and technology. The University of New Mexico’s STEM University provides undergrad students with a learning boost through a collection of free outside-of-class activities May through August.

These activities range from workshops, conferences, projects, mentorships and more. Some opportunities include identifying and photographing fossils in the Bisti Badlands, touring Albuquerque’s Southside Wastewater Reclamation Plant and traveling to Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge to learn about the UNM Biology Department’s Sevilleta Long Term Ecological Research Program.

Events give students impactful networking opportunities with scientists, engineers, researchers, faculty members and peers; along with connection to careers and internships, emerging technologies, cutting edge research and leadership and advocacy in STEM.

STEM University sends out a weekly email about campus events, scholarships, news, jobs and other opportunities for undergraduate students. To stay up to date with upcoming events, go to UNM listserv management and type “UNM_STEM-L” under “list name.”
