In its 12th year, the annual School to World event offers 8th and 9th grade students insight into the world of careers. Albuquerque businesses, local government, and education have come together again to present 8th and 9th grade students with School to World, an event to light the pathway towards future education and career choices.
We are sorry to announce that School To World will no longer be available. It has been difficult to secure enough sponsors to continue to host the event.
We encourage middle and high schools to consider attending the NM Black History Month STEM Festival on Saturday, February 22 from 9-3pm at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
The NM Black History Month STEM Festival will consist of: 1) workshops on STEM Careers and College Prep; 2) information on Summer Science Programs; 3) a host of fun with science/engineering activities; and 4) games and robotic classes. Students, parents, and teachers will have the opportunity to talk to representatives from several companies regarding STEM career fields and participate in career workshops, interactive activities, and obtain college preparation information and scholarships. If you would like to join us, please contact: Theresa A. Carson, C.P.M. at (505) 844-3565 or email@example.com.
We encourage high schools to consider attending the CNM "Make Your Mark" Career Technical Education Open House on Friday, February 28, 2014 from 8:30-1 on the CNM Main Campus.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support of this event over the past 12 years.
