Do you know a middle- or high-school student with a knack for creative thinking who’s looking for a fun challenge this school year? Registration is now open for the Innoventure program at New Mexico State University’s Arrowhead Center.
Now in its 12th year, Innoventure encourages middle- and high-school students to use science, technology, engineering and math to solve business problems.
Connecting key regional private-sector industries to the diverse resources New Mexico State University has to offer is a complex task, but that's the mission of Jorge A. Ramos, the director of corporate development at Arrowhead Center, the university's hub of technology commercialization and business incubation.
Ramos took on the newly created role in January, and since then he's been laying the groundwork to make everything that the university has to offer more accessible to companies in the region.
Today, New Mexico State University, NMSU’s Arrowhead Center and the newly formed Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine announced a partnership to create the state’s newest medical school on the NMSU campus.
“This is an outstanding day for New Mexico,” said NMSU President Garrey Carruthers. “This public-private partnership will benefit the health and well-being of people across our state, and the region, by addressing our severe shortage of primary care physicians, especially among New Mexico’s underserved, rural populations.”
Spontaneously or intentionally, humans reveal a range of emotion by their facial expressions.
Now, with LED technology developed with assistance from Sandia National Laboratory, a doll can mimic facial movements with which humans show emotion.
The doll, for sale on amazon.com, is the brainchild of a New Mexico innovator who needed help to evolve the technology from concept to production.
She found that assistance at Sandia National Laboratory, where she worked with two engineers to get it right.
When computer engineer and would-be entrepreneur Aaron Garcia, a 1992 graduate of New Mexico State University, set out to find a location in Las Cruces for the electronic health records management company he was developing, he was really just looking for a secure building. What he found at NMSU’s Arrowhead Center, though, was much more than office space.

After skipping four grades in elementary and high school, graduating from college at 18, then landing a business-development position at news aggregator Digg, Brian Wong was on the fast track to success. But five months later, he found himself jobless--and trying to determine what to do next.
When I sit down with a new client to understand their marketing needs, at some point the conversation almost always turns to how we can track the effectiveness of our efforts. It is typically then that I ask the client if they look at their web analytics.
More often than not, the response is, “I don’t know if we have that.” Or when I explain that Google Analytics can show and track their website visitors’ behavior, demographics or how they acquired them, I often hear, “I didn’t know that kind of information was available.”
It is. And it is free.
