Sandia researchers got creative this year to develop virtual tours, video experiments and more to support the annual New Mexico Science Fiesta Expo, an interactive learning event for children of all ages from across the state. YouTube videos of many of the events are still available online.
Women @ Energy features Erika Roesler
Sandia atmospheric and climate scientist Erika Roesler has been recognized by DOE’s Women @ Energy: STEM Rising website, which honors women in STEM fields throughout the DOE complex. During her time at Sandia, Erika has worked in climate modeling, where her research seeks to understand how clouds may vary as a result of climate change.
Shake, rattle and roll
About 45 Gallup, New Mexico, high school juniors and seniors took in a little shake, rattle and roll at Sandia’s Environmental Test and Evaluation Complex during a special March 4 STEM Day event organized just for them.
The venerable R&D 100 contest, slightly more than 50 years old, has a new owner, and the competition continues. Competing in an international pool of universities, corporations and government labs, Sandia inventions captured four R&D 100 Awards this year, as well as two environmental and one business award.
