The University of New Mexico's Health Sciences Center (HSC) Office for Diversity has created a cross campus opportunity designed to connect student groups (5th grade - first year in college) with UNM and community organizations to participate in a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math and Health (STEAM-H) Career Exploration Extravaganza Weekend.

This is a free two-day event for all participants selected to attend. Participants will experience age-appropriate and mind-grabbing workshops that will empower New Mexico youth to envision themselves as scientists and health professionals. The program features motivational speakers, scientist, health professionals, student mentors and community partners who will engage with and inspire students to envision themselves in STEAMH careers.

Lodging and food will be provided at no cost for all student and teacher/chaperone participants. Free transportation options will be available from select regional locations throughout the state. The application deadline is Friday, April 17.

For more information about hosting a workshop for students or to volunteer during the event, contact Susan Gafner, HSC Office for Diversity, at or 272-2728.
