About Us

The Asombro Institute for Science Education is a 29-year-old nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing natural science literacy through engaging, place-based education. Asombro’s seven staff members deliver hands-on, inquiry-based science education programs to more than 25,000 K-12 students, 800 teachers, and 700 other adults annually. Most programs are inquiry-based classroom lessons, but Asombro also conducts teacher workshops, public events, and field trips to our 935-acre Chihuahuan Desert Nature Park and the adjacent USDA Jornada Experimental Range. While the topics and formats of programs vary widely, all Asombro programs are (1) inquiry-based, (2) related to current, local research through partnerships with scientists, and (3) aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and other national education standards.
