The statewide New Mexico Alliance for Minority Participation program will hold its annual Student Research Conference at New Mexico State University’s Corbett Center on October 5 for students and faculty in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics degree programs.
Pre- and post-conference activities will be held on October 4 and 6 for community college students. In addition, approximately 100 high-school juniors and seniors will attend with the New Mexico Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement program. Rounding out the day is the NMSU University Research Council annual research fair featuring faculty research in poster format, held each year in conjunction with the New Mexico AMP Conference. At the conference, students present their research in both oral and poster formats and participate in activities and events that serve as vehicles for student and faculty networking. The conference is a forum for STEM students, instructors, and industry professionals to share information, ideas, experiences, and advice.
New Mexico AMP is funded by the National Science Foundation with the support of the New Mexico state legislature. For more information and/or to register for the New Mexico AMP Student Research Conference, go to http://www.nmsu.edu/~nmamp/ or contact Cheri Coffelt at 646-1847.
