BSMA News:

Twenty-two Taos High School students enjoyed the hands-on science activities at the Bradbury Science Museum, thanks to the bus ride paid for by the Bradbury Science Museum Association.

“Getting the bus ride funding made such a huge difference for us!” said Ines Firmo, Taos High School special education science teacher. For some of our students, this is the first time they have been outside of Taos, so I’m really happy that we knew about the BSMA transportation grant so we could give them this experience. Our students are loving all the hands-on science activities here, it’s the best way to learn!”

The Bradbury Science Museum Association (BSMA) is the volunteer non-profit education outreach partner to the museum with the mission of providing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education opportunities for all ages in northern New Mexico.

BSMA is not part of the museum or the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and does not receive funding from the museum or from the Lab, but relies on memberships, donations and the proceeds from merchandise sold through the BSMA gift shop inside the museum.
