Discussion on undergraduate programs featured during week.
By Wally Perez
A couple of events for STEM Week should attract students involved in the science, technology, engineering and math departments.
The week showcases courses in the STEM category to get students interested in these majors.
Several STEM-related student organizations on campus, such as the Mexican American Engineers and Scientists, created a solar electric cart in 2015.
The MESA Center seeks students for the undergraduate research program this summer, which involves work on the solar cart.

MESA Coordinator Analisa Sengele is in charge of STEM Week this semester.
There will be a STEM student research panel discussion at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the MESA Center.
Students are welcome to attend and listen to students who have participated in STEM undergraduate research.
These students will share their experiences, what they’ve learned and the programs they have participated in.
This is a chance for students interested in similar programs and opportunities to ask questions.
Dr. Thomas Adams, curator of paleontology and geology at the Witte Museum, was scheduled to speak at the center, but he is not available on the date asked. They are rescheduling his visit for a later date this semester.
A field trip, sponsored by Motivating Engineers To Achieve, Friday for STEM students is in the works.
