Managing Local STEM-H Competitions

Sponsoring Organization: 
UNM STEM-H Center for Outreach, Research, & Education

You will NOT want to miss this great workshop for upper elementary, middle and high school educators! Whether you've been managing a local STEM program/ competition for years or are just starting out, this workshop is for YOU! Erin Garcia has been successfully managing the Central NM Science & Engineering Research Challenge for a number of years. Erin works annually as part of the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair Operation Staff. Erin will share the basics of running a student research program/competition, handling protocols/paperwork, recruiting judges, fund & "friend" raising to support your efforts and provide student awards, working with your colleagues/administration/PTO to make sure you aren't the ONLY one putting the event together, set up logistics, etc.

This will be a time to share "best practices" with your colleagues, ask questions, get help with problem areas, etc. Please join us! Bring your frustrations, concerns, problems, and successes to share!
