Enhancing the New Mexico STEM Pipeline -- Design and Development Launch Pilot
New Mexico State University, NM Best Robotics, NM VEX Robotics
New Mexico STEM Pathways
Enhancing the New Mexico STEM Pipeline program as part of the pilot project will develop an assessment framework to measure scientific self-efficacy, scientific identity and value orientation indicators as well as intention and behavioral indices related to integration of a student into the STEM community. By partnering with existing STEM curricular and extracurricular programs, Enhancing the New Mexico STEM Pipeline will have access to students in the STEM pipeline from grades six through PhD. Enhancing the New Mexico STEM Pipeline’s goal is to use these data to model a student’s STEM evolution and identify the point(s) where they stop thinking of STEM as a viable career path. This information will serve as feedback to the STEM programs where content can be modified to better retain underrepresented students.
