Promoting education

Here are three things we all can do to inspire children to scientific literacy and possibly a career at one of New Mexico's national laboratories:

  • Spark scientific inspiration in the children around you, cultivate curiosity
  • When the going gets tough, encourage them to keep going
  • Create an enriched environment early
