HMTech is an educational supplement that inspires young minds through engineering and scientific experiences. The program targets African American middle and high school students.
In 1986, a group of African American employees started an after school program to inspire African American students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Ten years later the program became a summer program sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories. HMTech has been inspiring young minds for over 30 years!
The HMTech program is sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories Community Involvement and Black Leadership Committee.
