I spent two great days at the Mescalero Apache School at their second annual
student STEM conference. I was invited by Mike Montoya to give a series of climate
change talks to a bunch of high schoolers from all over the region. The
students were mainly from tribal schools and some came from as far as
Flagstaff and Cuba, NM. The fair started off with a speech from retired Commander John
Herrington who flew on the Shuttle Endeavour (STS-113) and did a space
walk to install parts of the International Space Station. The students and staff at the school did a great job in running the conference and made it enjoyable.
