Five years of planning and Explora is ready to begin the first phase of its expansion.
The master plan is to make the area a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) learning campus, which will improve educational outcomes, drive economic development, and boost family and community prosperity. It was presented to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science Board of Trustees meeting on Friday.
Kristin Leigh, Explora deputy director and director of community engagement, said the plan is a result of 22 listening sessions, 70 conversations with stakeholders, three public meetings and two strategic planning retreats.
