The mission of the Central NM Science & Engineering Research Challenge is to work directly with middle- and high-school teachers and students to encourage young people to become interested in engineering and science and participate in Science Fair competitions.
The Central NM Science & Engineering Research Challenge is a two-division (junior division for middle school students and senior division for high school students), fourteen category regional student competition of science and engineering projects. The Central NM Science & Engineering Research Challenge qualifies students to participate in the State Science Fair and sends up to four top qualifying projects to the International Science Fair.
The Research Challenge is held yearly at the University of New Mexico. Students qualify to participate at the regional level by advancing from their school or local fair. The Central New Mexico region includes Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia, and Torrance Counties.
