ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A nonprofit based in Washington, D.C. has picked two New Mexican educators to receive a STEM research grant. The group Society For Science is giving
$100,000 in grants to 52 teachers across the country.

The teachers chosen from New Mexico are Sergio Torres, who is a science teacher at the Native American Community Academy. Nate Raynor, a teacher at the Mescalero Apache School, was also named.

The Society of Science hopes that the grants will give classrooms access to a wider range of equipment and materials used in STEM research.
