In addition to other programs & resources, the STEM-H Center manages 3 large STEM-H student competitions: Central NM Science Olympiad, Central NM Science & Engineering Research Challenge (aka...science fair), and the SW Junior Science & Humanities Symposium. We are always seeking volunteer judges, event supervisors, and general event assistants and welcome all the help we can get! We are committed to providing students with positive experiences that lead to continued interest in STEM-H learning and to careers as STEM-H professionals or, at the very least, to being an informed STEM-H literate citizen. All three competitions are held annually in the Spring.
