Halfway through the fall semester and things are going great. This Trinidad State update will take Just a Minute!

BEST Robotics happens Saturday
For about five weeks area middle and high school students from northern New Mexico and southern Colorado have been pouring their free time into building a robot. Then on Saturday, October 14, they will gather at Scott Gym in Trinidad where their robots will tackle multiple challenges under the added stress of a ticking clock. It's a test of ingenuity, teamwork and strategy. This is our third year of hosting a BEST (Boosting Engineering Science and Technology) Robotics event and believe me, it's a fun experience with all the drama and excitement of a competitive sporting event. Twelve teams are coming, from as far away as Antonito, Del Norte and Des Moines, New Mexico. Please join us starting at 10:30 on October 14.

New signs send welcoming message
We're upgrading our signs at both our campuses to give them a more modern look. We hope this sign at the corner of Main and Bell Avenue in Alamosa catches your eye as you head down the street. A sign marking the entrance to our Valley Campus parking lot on Alamosa Avenue is also on the way. Two more signs will soon be installed on the Trinidad Campus at Park and Prospect and at the corner of Pine and State streets.

Until next time,

Carmen M. Simone, Ph.D.
President, Trinidad State
