Student Application for Equipment Rental

This traveling exhibit is being brought to Grants by UNM Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center with the financial support of the National Library of Medicine(NLM).

Where: NMSU-Grants Campus, Martinez Hall CyberCafe
When: Wednesday, September 16; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Who: Everyone is invited

Curated by the National Library of Medicine, the exhibit explores the connections among wellness, illness and cultural life for contemporary American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Honoring the Native tradition of oral history, NLM gathered a multitude of healing voices from across the country to record people’s stories in their own words. Healers, elders and other key figures describe how epidemics, loss of land, loss of lives and the inhibition of culture in the 19th and 20th centuries affect the health of Native individuals and communities today.

An online exhibit, which includes interactive videos and other resources, can be found at: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/nativevoices/

For more information, call Cecilia Stafford, NMSU Grants Library Director, (505) 287-6639 or email: stafford@nmsu.edu

   Many area students took advantage of a great opportunity to earn extra high school and college credit through the NMSU Grants Summer Academies. Six academies where held this year, up from four in previous years. Students earn 3 credits for each Academy and were able to earn up to 12 credits for the summer. Our two U.S. Department of Education grants funded these academies. The Title V UNM-NMSU Cooperative Grant sponsored the first four Academies and The Native American Serving Non-Tribal Institutions Grant sponsored two Academies in July. All students were welcome to participate.
The Academy Themes were: Game Development, Intro to Computer Science, Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Start a Game Design Business, There’s No Place Like Home and Digital Storytelling.

The Academies included a lot of hands-on projects including building computers, designing computer games, developing business plans, researching the perfect water balloon weight for distance, researching available STEM careers and creating their own video production.

The Academies also included many fieldtrips including visits to Intel, National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, New Mexico Tech and local historic sites like the Zuni Church and Museum and El Morro National Monument.

Over forty students took advantage of this opportunity from as a far away as Tohajiilee. Over two hundred and fifty credits were earned in just 8 weeks. The grant funding provided transportation and lunches for the students. Special recognition to all of the awesome students who used their summer to move their education forward.

Summer Academies are planned for next summer so if you are a high school student plan to attend.
