A Message from the Director

Dr. Wanda Bulger-Tamez, Director

Our mission at the STEM Outreach Center is to build a NMSU K-16 pipeline Outreach Program by reaching out to school districts, educators, families, community agencies, and higher education institutions.

The STEM Outreach Center Framework supports STEM education within the College of Health, Education Social Transformation (HEST) and partner districts. The Out-of-School Time programs offer accessibility for under-represented students in rural and isolated areas to explore STEM from an early age; Professional Learning programs such as MC2 and EMSS build capacity in math and science education focused on research-based practices; the NMC3 project builds a network and support for teachers, families, and caregivers by providing technology, pedagogy, and community resources. Partnerships are also important in amplifying the impact that our Center has in providing knowledge and expertise in a way that is inclusive of all stakeholders.

Outreach and research is woven within all of our programs to provide high quality work and inform effectiveness and accessibility for all students in New Mexico.
