Hot Springs High School science students visit our analytical chemistry laboratory — Socorro, NM
March 23, 2022
Earlier this month, Hot Springs High School (HSHS) science students visited the analytical lab at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources as part of a regional education outreach water project. Environmental science teacher Sergio Torres brought students to the NMBGMR to learn about the chemical analysis of water, well measurements and geothermal studies. Students brought municipal and hot spring water samples from Truth or Consequences for analysis. HSHS student Sarah Wyatt contributed the following article to the Sierra County Sentinel newspaper about this visit. Later this spring, these HSHS students will meet with NMT professor Michael Schaefer to review their water data. Thanks, laboratory manager Bonnie Frey, for coordinating this excellent educational experience for high school students!
