The BSMA is the newly formed non-profit association with the sole mission of raising money to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education outreach into Northern New Mexico.

Our students especially enjoy the hands-on minds-on activities,” Dr. Steinhaus said. “Thank you for the ​Association’s partnership with the museum, and for taking STEM education opportunities outside of Los Alamos and into all of Northern New Mexico.”​

Proceeds from merchandise purchased through the Gadgets souvenir shop support STEM education outreach. BSMA members receive 10 percent discount off of their purchase​s​. Gadgets is a 100 percent volunteer operation.
