The Excellence in STEM Awards are designed to celebrate STEM education in New Mexico. It recognizes students, teachers, schools, businesses, and others who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to, and advocacy of, STEM learning. NTEC was selected as Industry Partner of the Year for the New Mexico Excellence in STEM Awards.
NTEC proudly supports Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) activities in the communities in which we operate. Many of these school-based activities are designed to show elementary, middle, high school and college students the possibilities of a STEM-related career.
NTEC facilitates an annual workshop for teachers of Navajo students to help with lesson plans and ideas that show students how carbon is created and used in the world today.
The workshop includes presentations from local energy experts to expand teachers’ knowledge about carbon uses. Tours of Navajo Mine and Four Corners Power Plant bring first-hand experiences to teachers about coal as a power source.
Middle and high school teachers can attend the workshop in Farmington, N.M., to be held on July 31 – August 3, 2023. Selected teachers will receive a stipend, mileage reimbursement, lodging, and meals.
July 31 – August 3, 2023
