From Eastern New Mexico University:

The $50,000 Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities grant from the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement given to Eastern New Mexico University will be used to focus on energy and water challenges, bringing together a group of the state’s informal science educators and a group of the state’s university-based researchers. By combining the academic and practical skills of both groups, the network will develop new and unique ways to engage students and the general public with the cutting edge scientific research presented through informal science education programs.
