Developing Lifelong Learners
Both centers in El Paso provide educational opportunities to the residents and is open to the public. Lastly, several participants of the El Paso LNESC staff have started as students from our high school programs. Others have started from our college intern program and have graduated and stayed with LNESC. Such members include Shane Weller (Philadelphia Center Director) and Carmen Ibarra who started as a college intern with LNESC and is currently a Talent Search Educational Advisor. There have been many more participants who have taken advantage of the opportunities that LNESC in El Paso have provided.
Thank you for providing great experiences throughout my high school. It was great experiencing those trips. I learned a lot from the Lockheed Martin Trip. I learned how to get internships there. I also really enjoyed the trip to the different competitions that we participated in. Thank you!

Being part of the LNESC program has opened many doors and given me many opportunities. It has allowed me the chance to continue my education while being able to help kids who may not have been given the same resources as others while growing up. As a future educator, it has allowed me the chance to experience my field of work and be able to grasp the concept of how much an educator can make a difference, even if it’s just in one student

I want to thank the LNESC organization for their continuous academic support here at Bel Air High. You have provided opportunities for our students to grow in the STEM field, including the University field trips to UTEP and NMSU, and the space museum field trips to Alamogordo.
