Given the recent natural disasters and the public health emergency that we are facing, Ciencia Puerto Rico continues to be committed to the educators and students of Puerto Rico, who have seen their teaching and learning process interrupted, first by a sequence of earthquakes and now by the COVID-19 pandemic. This new crisis (the third in last three years) highlights how important it is to develop strategies and tools that ensure the continuity and resilience of the education system.
When a natural disaster affects the physical structure of classrooms and schools, the continuity of education is typically impacted. Depending on the severity of the disaster, educators and students may spend long periods without teaching or learning. This has been the case for Puerto Rico, an archipelago located in a geographical area vulnerable to climate change, and exposed to storms, hurricanes and seismic activity.
¿Quieres celebrar la semana de la puertorriqueñidad de forma distinta?
¡Tenemos una idea para ti!
¿Sabías que existen muchos profesionales en las áreas de STEM que son Boricuas y que llevan a cabo grandes proyectos en Puerto Rico y el mundo? La mayoría de los puertorriqueños no conocen sus historias de innovación y perseverancia. ¡Que increíble si celebráramos también este aspecto de nuestra cultura!
We are launching the Educación al Servicio (Education in Service) Blog! To being, we would like to review our CienciaPR initiatives and contributions in the area of STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and how these have evolved to influence the educational environment within and outside the classroom.
