About Tech Trek NM

Tech Trek NM was an amazing 7 days of STEM and held in Socorro, NM, June 18 – 24, 2017!

60 Campers from 50 diffetent middle schools reported to the New Mexico Tech campus on the first day of camp, Sunday, June 18, and participated in fun activities to celebrate everyone’s excitement. Families were welcome to stay and participate in the campus tour.

Campers participated in 5 core classes and 12 workshops. They talked with professionals in STEM and went on field trips to Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge and the Very Large Array.

Transportation to Socorro is up to each participant and her family. If you would like to arrange a carpool, send an email with your travel information and details to the Camp Director.

Each camper shared a resident hall room with one other camper.

Planning has begun for Tech Trek NM 2018 at New Mexico Tech June 10-16, 2018.
