[ARCHIVED] "Teen Science Café: Heat Mapping" at the Museum of Nature and Science

Teen Science Cafe Heat Mapping

Teens ages 11 to 17 are invited to “Teen Science Café: Heat Mapping” at the Museum of Nature & Science, 411 N. Main St., at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2022.
Dinner is included, and admission is free.
Middle and high school students will meet New Mexico State Climatologist Dave DuBois, Ph.D., during dinner and learn about urban heat islands. Urban heat islands are caused by an increase in surfaces that absorb heat, like asphalt and concrete, that raise surrounding air temperatures.
Participants will take and map real time temperature measurements and come up with solutions to reduce the temperature effect of urban landscapes.
As the State Climatologist and Director of the New Mexico Climate Center, Dr. DuBois is the first contact person for climatic information in New Mexico. DuBois oversees the collection, processing, and delivery of data from climate station databases in response to requests from users. He also oversees and maintains a state-wide agricultural meteorological monitoring network.
Teen Science Café is a free, fun way for teens to explore the advances in science and technology and meet with STEM professionals to learn about career options for their future. Teens participate in discussion and hands on activities for deeper exploration of topics they choose.
The Museum of Nature & Science is accessible from RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1, Stop 1. Visit the Museums System website at: or follow the Las Cruces Museums on Facebook and Instagram @LCMuseums.
For information, contact Stephanie Hawkins, Education Curator, at 575/532-3372 or by email at
