New Mexico Governor’s STEM Challenge Begins 2nd Year

first_imgSTEM News:ALBUQUERQUE – New Mexico high school students have the opportunity to use their problem-solving skills to compete in the second New Mexico Governor’s STEM Challenge program.Ten-person student teams will work on a solution to the question “How Can You Combine New Mexico’s Natural Resources with Technology to Address Regional/Global Needs?” New Mexico State University (NMSU) formulated the question and criteria for this year’s New Mexico Governor’s STEM Challenge. Winners will be determined by industry employers in the state. The top teams will win up to $5,000. Student teams will present a prototype model at the statewide STEM Showcase at NMSU Dec. 5, 2020.“Governor Lujan Grisham cares deeply and passionately that New Mexican students can compete and thrive in a 21st Century economy,” said Secretary Bill McCamley of the New Mexico Workforce Solutions Department. “The amazing contributions from statewide public and private sector partners shows widespread agreement with the Governor and we are excited to begin the second year of this program.”NMSU, the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions, Los Alamos National Labs, and the New Mexico Public Education Department are coordinating the 2020 New Mexico Governor’s STEM Challenge.“The New Mexico Governor’s STEM Challenge is a wonderful initiative that gives New Mexico high school students the chance to develop valuable skills in STEM fields,” NMSU Chancellor Dan Arvizu said. “We know giving students opportunities like this program not only help them prepare for college but also steer them toward STEM careers. We are very excited to host the statewide STEM showcase in December. I cannot wait to see the solutions that the talented students of New Mexico present.”In the first year of the program, 65 New Mexico high schools and more than 600 students attempted the challenge. One of the program’s goals is to encourage the state’s students and teachers to integrate and use Next Generation Science Standards in daily classroom curriculum.The challenge reinforces skills such as teamwork, problem solving, innovation, STEM development, breakthrough technologies and presentation skills. Student teams are allowed up to two teacher mentors and will receive support from subject matter expert mentors, who are coordinated through NMSU and Northern New Mexico College.The New Mexico Public Education Department will provide professional development along with supplies and materials. Additionally, teacher mentors will receive a $500 stipend and weekly virtual support for the challenge. As the event gets closer and public health issues become clearer all the partners will look at options for a virtual event should safety of students, teachers, parents, and sponsors remain high.Companies participating include Air Force Research Labs, Boeing, Chevron, Deloitte, Facebook, Intel, LANL, N3B, Pattern Energy, PNM, Presbyterian, Sandia National Laboratories, URENCO, Virgin Galactic, Lovelace, UNM Health Sciences Center and Molina Health Care. Additional Industry Partners may be added as the 2020 New Mexico Governor’s STEM Challenge evolves and progresses toward the STEM Showcase in December.For specific information about the challenge including important dates visit: https://webnew.ped.state.nm.us/bureaus/math-science/governors-stem-showcase/.

Scoring good for some, abysmal for others

first_imgThe course was in great condition with fast greens and in reality there was nothing you could fault, although it was a slow day out there, and hot until the breeze came up on the back nine and made it a pleasant day. PSC Golf from BillabongFriday, Feb. 14th Burapha C & D StablefordC and D at Burapha for a change and what a difference it was to play. It is a much harder 18 holes of golf than the A and B loops. We had 5 groups playing and the scoring was very good for some and abysmal for others.We had a count back for the minor placings, all on 35 points, with Steve the consistent Giles taking 4th place. Gerry Grocott took 3rd and Nial Stuart took 2nd.The French connection came out with the cream of the crop, Thiery Petrement, taking the top spot with a fine 38 points. That is a great score around this course.There were two 2s coming from Thiery Petrement and Andrew Woodall.last_img read more

Bell eager to get back to work as 3-game suspension ends

first_imgLeVeon Bell (AP Photo/Gene Puskar/File)PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Le’Veon Bell stood at his locker, his face covered in sweat and his eagerness to kickstart his stalled NFL career palpable.His three-game suspension for a second violation of the league’s substance abuse policy over, the Pittsburgh Steelers running back is ready to get back to work, particularly after spending Sunday afternoon watching his teammates get clobbered across the state in Philadelphia.“It sucked,” Bell said.Pretty much. The team that looked borderline unstoppable at times during wins over Washington and Cincinnati was a mess against the Eagles. DeAngelo Williams, who filled in so brilliantly for Bell during the opening two weeks, slogged for just 21 yards. The offense posted its lowest point total in five years and the defense spent the afternoon futilely trying to make Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz look like a rookie.Enter Bell, limited to six of Pittsburgh’s last 22 games thanks to knee injuries and run-ins with the league’s drug policy. An All-Pro in 2014 when he emerged as one of the best all-around backs in the league, Bell believes he’s a better player than the one last seen being carted off the field in a loss to the Bengals last November with a torn MCL in his right knee.[pullquote]“I’m a lot smarter,” Bell said. “So many things I did my (in 2014) were good things. But I look back at my film now and I’m like, `What am I doing on this play? What am I doing on that play?”'[/pullquote]Sunday night’s visit from Kansas City (2-1) marks Bell’s first appearance in a game that matters in 11 months. He insists his surgically repaired right knee is fine. So, too, is the desire to prove that he’s all the way back. The faster the better.“I’ve always felt like I had to prove something to somebody,” Bell said. “That is never going to go away. I’m always going to have this personal chip on my shoulder.”Even if one of Bell’s biggest enemies the last two years has been himself. He sat the first two games of the 2015 season as part of the fallout for his arrest on DUI and drug possession charges in August, 2014. Another four-game suspension (eventually reduced to three) came down in August after Bell says he overslept and missed a drug test.“I’m not a perfect person, I never will be,” he said. “I know there are some things I can get better (at).”Probably a good idea as Bell enters the final year of the rookie contract he signed after the Steelers took him in the second round of the 2013 draft. He appeared on the verge of stardom in 2014 when he put up a combined 2,215 yards from scrimmage and proved just as dangerous catching passes as he was patiently setting up his blockers following a handoff.Over the last 330 days he’s released his own hip-hop mixtape (under the pseudonym “Juice”) and collaborated with rap legend Snoop Dogg on another track. What he hasn’t done, however, is score a touchdown or participated in a Pittsburgh victory. He made a token appearance in the first half of the Steelers’ third preseason game in August but otherwise he’s been a bystander.For the majority of Bell’s absence, Pittsburgh’s offense hardly looked like it missed him. Williams was steady and occasionally spectacular over the second half of the 2015 season and led the NFL in rushing through the first two weeks of 2016 before the team-wide pratfall in Philly.Bell believes there’s a chance for the Steelers to go to a two-back system, though Williams himself has said repeatedly he expects to go back to a secondary role once Bell is ready to go. Bell understands there may be some rust, which is why he won’t shy away from contact during practice this week.“For me not to be hit as much since last November, I’m obviously going to want a little contact, blitz pickup, just to get ready for it,” he said.Bell’s teammates are certainly ready for his familiar No. 26 to join them, particularly after a three-hour reality check at the hands of the Eagles.“He brings a lot of energy to the huddle,” left tackle Alejandro Villaneuva said. “We’re just happy he can recover from this incident and get his career back because that’s what matters to him and matters to us as well.”NOTES: S Robert Golden underwent an MRI on Monday to have the hamstring he injured against Philadelphia examined but is uncertain if he’ll be ready by Sunday.___Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img
