Anton Chico students visit Luna, learn about STEM opportunities
Luna Community College’s STEM Department hosted students from Anton Chico Middle School as part of New Mexico MESA’s Regional Roundup on Nov. 18.
The middle school students participated in Binary Challenge, a computer science-based exercise to familiarize them with binary coding.
The visiting students also toured the department’s new 3D print lab, where they saw pre-engineering students printing class projects as an introduction to the 3D printing process.
Luna President Dr. Edward Martinez, Vice President Dr. Dani Day and several STEM faculty members spoke with the visiting students, encouraging them to continue exploring the sciences.
“It was good to have the students visit and have them participate in a valuable learning experience,” said Francisco Apodaca, Luna STEM director. “I think they enjoyed the experience of visiting LCC, and they seemed to have had a lot of fun.”
