Stella was drawn to STEM outreach and education while obtaining her master’s degree in Computer Science. She realized that she could share her programming skills with children in a meaningful way. She was especially interested in giving younger students the opportunity to access technology.
One of the most memorable experiences Stella had took place when she was helping organize field trips for elementary school students visiting NMSU’s various learning labs, including the Jack and MaryLou Davis STEM Tech Lab in O’Donnell Hall.
“I’ll never forget the joy and excitement on the students’ faces while working with robotics,” Stella said when asked about her experience. NMSU is working toward providing access to a STEM experience that will impact students who might never see themselves working within STEM fields.
