LUQ Schoolyard 9th Symposium Celebrated in May 15th 2017

LUQ Schoolyard celebrated its 9th Symposium. The mixture of science, culture and creativity made the activity enjoyable and inspirational. Our students and teachers showed their interest and questions related to: drought and its impact in the water quality of water of rivers and dams and about factors that threaten the wild life of certain organisms in New Mexico. These themes were presented by the students using the tools showed to them during the academic year.
