The proclamation acknowledged the Laboratory’s efforts to enhance regional science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and enrichment initiatives through work force development, student internships, faculty professional development and public understanding of science. It also noted LANL’s sponsorship in education programs and activities, including the Northern New Mexico RoboRAVE Rally, Future City competition and the Accelerate Job Training Program.
The Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories and several other government and private sector entities signed a proclamation in 2014 that recognizes the importance of STEM fields in New Mexico and commits Los Alamos and its STEM partners to lead the way in sparking math and scientific inspiration in New Mexico residents, and engage students in hands-on, minds-on STEM activities.
