  • The NM Science Olympiad department at Tech is hosting the 25th Annual Teacher's Fall Workshop on October 24 and 25. About 60 science teachers from across the state will be on campus those days.

    If anyone has information to share with the visiting science teachers or their students, please send information regarding any programs or courses that your department may host for middle, high school students or science teachers. The Science Olympiad Department will add this information to registration packets.

    The Science Olympiad office also gives door prizes throughout the workshop. Anyone who has any leftover "goodies" from a previous event is welcome to add to the door prizes. These teachers appreciate anything you may give them. Most of the time, these teachers pass these items on to their students or use them in their classrooms to increase motivation. If you have questions, contact Rose Baca-Rivet at ext. 6774 or by email at

  • The ongoing construction of the new Bureau of Geology building will necessitate the closure of the sidewalk along Bullock Avenue during working hours. This will remain through the summer. The construction crew will block the areas when they arrive to work and remove them when they finish for the day. The construction crew will also post signs to direct pedestrians to go around to the north side of Bullock keeping them away from the construction area.  This project is scheduled to be completed by spring 2015.
  • What can you do with your empty printer and copier ink cartridges, and the cell phones you're no longer using? Put them in a collection box for the Rotary Club of Socorro. This project is partly community service, to keep the cartridges and phones out of the landfill, and partly an effort to raise funds for Rotary's local, national, and international projects. You will find collection boxes on campus in the Fidel Center, Human Resources, NRAO, MRO, and the Bureau of Geology. You will also see them at various locations around Socorro. Rotary thanks you for your help!
