Website update - 6/27/2014 by ellenloehman - 06-27-2014
If you've noticed some changes, you're right. I changed the theme so that it works better in your smart phone and tablet. The buttons at the bottom of the page should work now. A few things still need to be tidied up and then I'll resume working on the resources posts and search function. Let me know if something doesn't work right or if there is a feature missing. Ellen

I'm still migrating the website from nmsta.wildapricot.org. If you are looking for an older file, look there. These pages are in the process of being revised or updated. If you have items to add, please email the webmaster. Warning - they are still works in progress.

NM Resources - a fairly lengthy list of agencies and organizations that science teachers might need to access.

Contests, competitions and programs for students - a long list of all those contest that fly through our mailboxes far too late to incorporate into our curricula.
