"Asombro" is the Spanish
word for “wonder,” which is exactly what Asombro Institute
programs bring to the thousands of children and adults who participate
each year. The Asombro Institute for Science Education (formerly
the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Park) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3)
organization dedicated to increasing scientific literacy by fostering
an understanding of the Chihuahuan Desert.
To achieve this mission, we currently serve more
than 17,000 K-12 students and 1,500 adults in New Mexico and West
Texas with inquiry-based science education programs each year. Programs
take place in classrooms, schoolyards, and at the 935-acre Chihuahuan
Desert Nature Park site located north of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
