Students associated with CSU's acclaimed Little Shop of Physics program will pack and ship about 150 experiments to Edinburg, Texas, starting at 3 p.m. today in front of the Natural and Environmental Sciences Building.
The students and Little Shop of Physics Director Brian Jones will visit with more than 4,000 children and some 6,000 community members as part of the Hispanic Engineering, Science and Technology Education Week Sept. 24-29 at the University of Texas, Pan-American, which is near the U.S.-Mexico border.
Little Shop will represent the multi-institutional Center for Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes, which is based at Colorado State, and the National Science Foundation.
Hispanic Engineering, Science and Technology Education Week addresses the critical shortage of scientists and engineers in the United States by promoting science, technology, engineering and math, known as STEM, careers among predominantly Hispanic South Texas students. The conference will be Sept. 24-29.
