Los Alamos Public Schools look at STEM program

-A A +A

SANTA FE — Innovate+Educate is the brainchild of Jamai Blivin of Santa Fe.
And on Thursday night, Innovate+Educate along with Citizen Schools hosted a panel that discussed “Pay It Forward” for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education.
The panel consisted of Eugene Schmidt, superitendent of Los Alamos Public Schools, Bobbie Gutierrez, superintendent of Santa Fe Public Schools, Eric Schwarz, CEO of Citizen Schools of Boston and Carlos Contreras, the U.S. Director of Education for Intel Corporation.
Blivin said for now the New Mexico Innovate+Educate has set up a program in southern New Mexico. And the Santa Fe district has set up a pilot program for three of its schools.
So what about Los Alamos?
Schmidt said Los Alamos already has set up a grassroots program. And the results have been more than encouraging especially with the latest test results in the 80th percentile in math and science.
“Los Alamos has engaged in the conversation to learn about the potential that this program might bring to our community,” Schmidt said. “I am particularly interested in the professional development opportunities that could come from this and the potential partners that could bring outside funding to our schools.”
