Central New Mexico Science & Engineering Research Challenge
Starting in 1959 as the NWNM Science & Engineering Fair, the Central New Mexico Science & Engineering Research Challenge has helped thousands of students and their teachers with scientific research/engineering projects. Winners of these local research competitions move on to regional, state, and potentially international science and engineering fairs.
The Central New Mexico Science & Engineering Research Challenge is divided into two divisions:
Grades 6 - 8
Grades 9 - 12
Our organization qualifies approximately 80 Junior and Senior Division projects to compete in the CNM State Science & Engineering Fair every year. We then send up to four top-qualifying Senior Division exhibits (individuals and teams) and their sponsoring teachers to the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair.
In addition to learning about science and engineering, our student exhibitors are introduced into the real world of science, learning first-hand about the scientific method, acquiring the skills to present their projects, understanding the rules of competition and teamwork that exist in the real world of science and technology today. Science and Engineering "Fairs" clearly require students to research and demonstrate scientific principles, a valuable skill that will last a lifetime.
