The University of New Mexico MESA program partners with Raytheon to host MathMovesU (MMU) Day on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Stamm Room of the Centennial Engineering Center on Redondo Drive on campus.

More than 120 local middle and high school students will gather to participate in a highly visual, hands-on activity to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education.

In partnership with UNM, Raytheon’s MMU Day is designed to stimulate student interest in STEM related subjects. Students will engage in a variety of innovative projects while learning the math and science behind the processes.

Raytheon sponsors MMU Day in response to the U.S. working to point more students in the direction of STEM careers to reverse a declining number of engineers, scientists and technologists.
