Jack & MaryLou Davis TECH Center

Since 2017, the Department of Defense has made it possible for the NMSU College of HEST to turn ordinary classrooms into a novel learning environment that engages students in a complex science, math, and technology curriculum. The lab was designed by TEQ Games, a learning and simulation company based in Orlando, Florida. They have developed a lab featuring computer-based aviation platforms and simulators that engage students in a variety of missions that require critical thinking in applying core math and science competencies ranging from time-speed-distance calculations to advanced physics. 

The Test and Evaluation Collaboration Hub (TECH) Center is a set of technologies to create a new immersive learning environment for STEM students of every age by embedding learning objectives in an entertaining narrative and enhancing the story with virtual world gameplay and simulation technology. The TECH Center currently focuses on T&E scenarios, aviation, virtual reality, robotics, coding, engineering design and much more.
