WERC’s International Environmental Design Contest is a unique event that brings together industry, government and academia in the search for improved environmental solutions. Held annually since 1991, the contest draws hundreds of college students from throughout the United States and around the world.
The student teams design solutions for real world problems and develop fully operational bench-scale solutions that are presented to panels of judges comprised of environmental professionals. The teams prepare four different presentations, written, oral, poster and working bench scale model.
High school students and their science teachers especially students interested in STEM program are encourage to attend and learn about NMSU/ WERC’s IEDC. High school teams were involved from 1998 to 2008, and we would like to re-invigorate the program.
We will plan a guided tour for high school students and their science teachers on April 5, followed by a meeting at 2 p.m. with their mentors and Chemical Engineering Head Department to discuss potential future participation from high school students.
