The Asombro Institute for Science Education (home of the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Park) is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing scientific literacy by fostering an understanding of the Chihuahuan Desert. To achieve this mission, we serve more than 13,000 K-12 students and 500 teachers in southern New Mexico with interactive, inquiry-based science education program each year. These programs are designed to bring the excitement of hands-on, inquiry-based science to your students.
