The Engineering New Mexico Resource Network in New Mexico State University?s College of Engineering partnered with the Las Cruces Public Schools EXCEL program to host five high school students during the fall 2016 semester. The EXCEL students spent the term working in the Aggie Innovation Space learning about innovation, entrepreneurship and the engineering design process.

NMSU?s Aggie Innovators mentored the EXCEL students, who worked on projects involving project management, 3-D printing, electronics and programming. The partnership began three years ago when Stuart Schemnitz, LCPS workplace learning specialist and EXCEL coordinator, approached NMSU about on-campus opportunities for students interested in engineering.
