SER National is partnering with UNM engineering staff and students to show New Mexico middle and high school students how rewarding careers in science technology and math (STEM) can be.
“We want to show them all the options they have in STEM so they can do engineering, they can do computer science,” said SER National representative, Mariana Reyes.
The students come from many different backgrounds, but the hope is to show them that they can be united by their interest in science.
“We actually brought in a former astronaut, Jose Hernandez. He gave a speech to the students,” said Reyes.
Whether it’s space exploration, or aviation through this flight simulator, SER National and UNM Engineering wants the students to consider a STEM-related career.
“There’s many opportunities out there,” said Reyes. “We might have the next big leader here in our group.”
