Math & Science Day 2011 at the NM State Legislature

Math & Science Day 2011 took place at the New Mexico State Legislature on March 11, 2011. New Mexico EPSCoR undergrads Ryan Schwingle and Tyler Van Riper were on hand to talk to students from around the state about NM EPSCoR's research on New Mexico water and climate change. Ryan brought his research poster and a working example of a digital water temperature sensor, and Tyler created a representation of all the water in the world using four different containers representing the ocean, all rivers and streams, atmospheric water, and ground water. He also used Skittles as an example of different chemical components in our water.

Education & Public Outreach are an essential part of the current New Mexico EPSCoR project.
