For more than 40 years, CABPES — the Colorado Association for Black Professional Engineers and Scientists— has worked with Black and underserved youths to encourage them to pursue careers in STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering and Science. Recently, two members of this year’s class, Salma Khalif and Nzube Kolawole, visited an exhibition at Stanley Marketplace in Aurora. "Space Explorers The Infinite" is an interactive experience aboard the International Space Station.
