 I have included additional details about the challenge below along with information about previous winners from your state. You can reply to this email or reach out to us at for more information or to schedule a meeting to learn more about the challenge. Similar to The New Mexico Public Education Department, we strive to ensure that youth of New Mexico have the opportunity to expand their horizons in the world of STEM.  We hope you consider using the NASA TechRise Challenge 2023-24 to aid in that mission.
