La Luz ECC Sets Up a Petting Zoo
From bike paths and food trucks, to pocket parks and exercise stations, the SS&TP now has experienced its first petting zoo. The La Luz Early Childhood Center (La Luz ECC), located in the Park, invited A to Z Animals from Belen, New Mexico, to set up a petting zoo at their facility. Farm animals included a cow, goat, pig, turkey, and donkey. There was even an exotic bird and camel. This experience was a great way for the children to learn and interact with the animals for a day.
Alumni from Sandia National Laboratories’ Academic Alliance schools gathered at a seminar to learn more about Sandia Labs’ Technology Transfer, Licensing, Entrepreneur Separation to Transfer Technology, and Entreprenuer Exploration programs. Collaboration with these universities should lead to more opportunites for technology transfer for the public good. One attendee stated, “Sandia is built on the idea that we have the best and brightest here. We come up with novel ideas all the time for national security. I think trying to split off and build companies around these ideas is an excellent idea, and right in line with Sandia’s dedication to technical excellence.” Over 25 Sandians attended the seminar.
