Students from Espanola Valley High School and Frances X. Nava Elementary School in Santa Fe, enjoyed a field trip to the Bradbury Science Museum thanks to a bus transportation grant provided by Los Alamos National Bank through the Bradbury Science Museum Association (BSMA).
LANB Market President Liddie Martinez is the BSMA grant representative and is pleased to partner with the BSMA to make it possible for students from northern New Mexico to visit the Bradbury Science Museum.
“We are so pleased to be able to continue our partnership this year with the BSMA and help them bring these students to our science museum,” Martinez said.
The BSMA is the 501(c)3 non-profit partner to the Bradbury Science Museum with the mission of promoting STEM education opportunities for people of all ages; and providing field trips for low-income students throughout northern New Mexico is one example of the BSMA’s STEM education outreach efforts.
Thanks to LANB’s support, the BSMA was able to offer bus transportation grants to 20 schools who applied through the BSMA’s transportation grant process. This year, an estimated 1,200 students will visit the Bradbury Science Museum thanks to the LANB-sponsored grant.
